The Essence: In Memory of Ella

Last night I stayed up to finish the design for my latest work. It’s a sculptural ensemble dedicated to a family member who passed away this morning. Her name is Ella. I knew her all of her life and cannot express how much she meant to me. I suppose to most people she was just an animal – a backyard chicken. To me, she was a dignified person, who lived a meaningful life. And I’m so grateful she was in my life.
