What is the Meaning and Philosophy Behind an ENSO?
The ENSO has many layers of meaning but is thought to be a sacred symbol from Zen Buddhism meaning circle, or sometimes the circle of togetherness.
The ENSO symbol is traditionally drawn using only one circular brush stroke as a meditative practice in letting go of the mind and allowing the body to create. A singular brush stroke allows for no modifications or editing.
ENSO Art Glass LLC acknowledges that the ENSO is a manifestation of the artist at the moment of artistic creation and emphasizes strength, elegance and the acceptance of our innermost self.
In choosing the studio name Enso Art Glass LLC, it calls to the circle of togetherness by encompassing the connection of the artist, the glass, and the client.
