Those, when added to ice-cold, hand-made seltzer alive with tiny bubbles, caused a near magical rift to form, giving us all a break from the heat and dust of the day.

The trope of this sculpture is caught in the realm between reality and potentiality.“ Interview with Roswitha Mueller, Milwaukee, April 1992...
