Triskelion

Clear Tar Gel on a Porcelain Butchers' Tray
The word pneuma keeps popping into my mind, and I want to create a piece that expresses that invisible, ineffable breath of life, spirit of the world, the soul of beingness. I poured this triskelion shape as an attempt to make clouds as they are shaped in Tibetan art, but pouring is really uncontrollable. Maybe as I continue I will understand how best to work with pouring tar gel, but for now, I have to go with the forms it makes. The material is leading me.
