Artist Statement

“The Butterfly Effect” draws inspiration from the concept that small actions can lead to significant global shifts. As you approach, you’ll notice butterflies near the front of the geode vanishing, symbolizing the ephemeral nature of our deeds and their environmental consequences.

This artwork encourages reflection on how minor actions, akin to a butterfly’s wingbeat, set off chain reactions. Just as these ceramic butterflies fade, our actions affect the delicate balance of nature.

“The Butterfly Effect” prompts contemplation of interconnectedness and our capacity to impact the environment. It serves as a reminder that our choices shape the world, urging us to become responsible stewards of our planet’s future.
