When I approached this piece I had an image in my mind of an iced over lake,

its scarred surface stretched over blue water.

Forms are pressed up against each other like agate: the chilled water and air;

a stinging breeze brushing the overlapping etchings on the surface, as from an ice skater's blade.

Water below struggles against its ceiling, waiting for the melt to begin.
