The Indian, Chinese, Brazilian and Pennsylvania slate
mosaic "Born To Dance" is a triptych, each panel
measuring 4 feet by 8 feet (the whole measuring 8’x12’). Born To Dance was
created from slate, garnets, and micaceous slates. The mosaic loosely
portrays the teachings of Paracelsus, a sixteenth century alchemist,
philosopher, mystic, astronomer and physician. The mosaic also reflects the
commonality and potentiality of the components of our universe. In this
case, the slates coming out of the ground closely relate to our above ground
earthly environs and to what we see in the sky. The sylph, the salamander,
the nymph and the gnome were imaginary beings inhabiting the four elements
once believed to make up the physical world.
