A crowd of tiny people are standing on a floating island looking up in awe at a strange and mesmerizing light caught up in the sky among the trees.
The light is a faceted glass structure glowing softly. This structure is hanging in balance with a concrete cylinder block. A crowd of tiny figures are standing on this gilded concrete cylinder with their faces up at the light.

When she is not drifting through the streets of Edmonton in search of the next subject of Back Words, her column in Vue Weekly, she can be found making the city more beautiful through art and design.

A regular vendor at the Royal Bison Art and Craft Fair, Chelsea has an affinity for the hand-made. She believes craft is the love-child of art and design.
