This collection is inspired by Toni Morrison, an American novelist, essayist, book editor, and college professor. She was a visionary and bright light and a soulful conduit for the suffering & possibility of humanity. This collection has got deep earth tones and pieces that take up space. The asymmetrical Eye of the Universe Dangles were inspired by her first novel, The Bluest Eye. In this collection, I hoped to have captured Toni's strength, her groundedness, and the depth of understanding she allows each reader to reach when they pick up her books.
