Sanctuary II

Artist Statement:

Several years ago, I began to notice the intrinsic beauty of the plastic bottle caps on plastic bottles for water, fruit and soft drinks. I had been doing some mosaic work in other materials, and realized that these brightly colored plastics that usually end up in landfills or polluting our waters could be given a new life in a mosaic. I chose the mandala format because it’s a symbol for the cycle of life, death, and rebirth, and often represents the sacred or the Divine and in many spiritual practices. The repetitive shapes radiating out from a center resemble the energy of the sun.
