BLURB

Beauty can be expressed, understood, and captured in many different ways, but when that beauty is embodied in something delicate or fragile we are inspired to abandon our reckless nature. It moves us to speak in hushed voices and to withhold our touch. Just knowing that the slightest brash movement can destroy something heightens our perception of something's value. A butterfly's wings, a porcelain vase, a flower petal: the delicate nature of these items makes us afraid to even touch them. This physical incarnation of grace is attractive to us. It is a deep breath and a moment of clarity in an otherwise fast paced and hardened world. It is the delicate and the fragile that remind us that deep down, we too are delicate and fragile and that maybe we should be treating ourselves as gently as we would a butterfly's wing. [Jackson McHugh]
