St. Elmo’s Fire

This vase, “St. Elmo’s Fire” is not named after the 1985 movie (sorry Ally Sheedy and friends) or the number one song of the same name, honouring Canadian great Rick Hansen. It is named after the once misunderstood weather phenomenon in which luminous plasma is created by a coronal discharge from a sharp or pointed object on a strong electric field in the atmosphere. This phenomenon is named after the patron saint of sailors and often appeared above the mast. It was considered a good omen and regarded with awe as it was considered a sign of the presence of Saint Elmo. This vase is about to make it’s own journey across the sea. ‘Take me where the future’s lying St. Elmo’s Fire’
