In creating the Grande Crater Ring I took my inspiration from our beloved satellite, Moon. The design was a simplistic illustration of the Moon's irregular yet beautifully textured surface. Just as I often find myself contemplating nature, the same is true of the order and activity beyond our atmosphere. When I gaze at the moon I find myself in awe. I contemplate its role, how it came to be, and I'm reminded that there are histories that have come far before my existence and will continue to stretch beyond it. This is the same moon that our parents, and grandparents, and parents before them have experienced and laid eyes on in their lifetimes.
My intention is for the Grande Crater Ring to serve as a reminder to look up for perspective- some things that can appear as mountains in our lives may suddenly feel a lot smaller.
