More about this talented Glass Artist

"A special transmission outside the scriptures,

With no reliance on words or letters,

A direct pointing to the human mind,

And the realization of enlightenment..."

  ~ Bodhidharma

Zen Circle of Enlightment

Enso ~ A Warriors Poem

The beginning of this vision
Starts with the ending
  Out Breath
Only to be entering,
The gestated seed form of vision.
Plump, ready to burst
Of a new technique
The large Circle coming
Out of the seed form
Leadership in the community
And influence without.
As the spiral tightens,
Into smaller circles
This represents,
The deeper teachings
To the select few.
Triangle, Circle, Square
The spiral ends into the seed form
Of Vision
At the end is the beginning

~ White Elk ~
An Artist's "Artist"

White Elk has been creating beautiful glass for over 22+ years. His work can be seen in numerous hotels, restaurants, casinos, hospitals and private collections all over the world. 

White Elk's studies have taken many forms including 28 years in the Healing Arts and Yoga, and 22 years of Aiki Martial Arts. He has also spent 24 years studying colors and their psychological effects upon the human psyche. Mountain climbing, hiking, biking, golfing, marathon running, and a variety of other sports have added to his spiritual sense of well being and balance.

The colors he uses are mixed to promote healing and generate health.

Marty White Elk and his family have lived in the heart of the Colorado Rocky Mountains for twenty five years+. His exquisite art glass is created in a small studio adjacent to their mountain cabin.

Marty's personal spiritual journey, and his studies in Aikido and health, are the passion, heart and soul of his art.
