Created in Summer 2017, Fotia was born in the year of the fire rooster. She is constructed of redwood, cedar, copper, steel, glass and vine maple by twenty-one collaborating artists and countless helping hands. Designed and led by artist Clay McCabe, Fotia represents strength, resilience, potential for growth and renewal in the chaos of the world. This chaos is our fire and from the fire there is opportunity to rise anew.
Fotia debuted in July, 2017, at the Oregon Country Fair and has been showcased at the Global Eclipse Gathering 2017 and Lightning in a Bottle in 2018.
