It was my wife’s birthday so I organized a trip for her to see the lava from a helicopter.
She went on an amazing heli ride with our dear friend and great cinematographer, Mick Kalber and talented photographer, Bruce Omori. It was a rainy morning but the pilot pushed through the cold rainy clouds. Once they arrived at the flow, the magnificence was beyond words. Creation/Destruction, all so perfectly orchestrated.
Maria captured the flow of the lava beautifully. These images inspired me for a new design on the “Black Kilauea Surface flow Vase”. Scroll down to see all images, first the inspiration, then the Glass vase.
