This is the third of three similar works in this series. You can also see the first piece, “Flying to the Inside (Mountain)”, as well as the second in the series, “Flying to the Inside 2 (Water)” on this “Highlighted Pieces” page. In all of these pieces, bird-like shapes repeat in a pattern following the form of the vessel. In this third piece, three diagonal swaths emerge from the vessel wall, with the bird shapes starting to separate from the wall, almost leaving its grasp. Then the birds go back into the wall, continuing their flight “to the inside”. It is a “bio-geometry” of three-dimensional tessellations that leads the eye back to the inside of the vessel. The lower section of the composition suggests the source from which the birds fly, in this case a forest. The two sections are displayed on a platform of soapstone. This piece is highlighted with gold luster.
