Singles sheets of imaged glass bound in an accordion style using an adaptation of wire-edge binding displayed on an imaged sheet of plate glass. The images are drawn from 17th Century Alchemical engravings, the text from a Rainer Maria Rilke poem:


One moment your life is a stone in you, and the next, a star.


Housed in a custom wood box.

9th Key is from the Symballein series. In use the Greek verb symballein suggested a gathering together, a hiding, or a veiling. This piece uses imagery from the 9th Key of Basil Valentine. Valentine was Benedictine monk who for his achievements in the chemical sphere has been given the title of Father of Modern Chemistry, This imagery is paired with writings transcribed with an alphabet I devised based on a hybridization of three alchemical alphabets.
