Lotus was a passion project that allowed us to deeply explore a self chosen area of interest or heart felt connection. My exploration of the Etheric Body, known as the "Energy Body", ultimately led me on an unforgettable life changing journey and unexpected form.
Explore something we are passionate about and submerge ourselves.
In the early stages I tried not to get caught up in the "how in the world do I design for the Etheric Body?" How does one design for something so abstract? I completely submerged myself in this experience of self discovery. It was all that and more. The original concept had a design of total seclusion. After fighting with materials being used, I surrendered and allowed them to direct me, which led to the lotus. Ironically also a symbol of rebirth.
