Story
The Chasing Clouds Collection. 

She’s running after something, who knows what. At times she’s alive and full of wonder, other times she’s pensive, lost in the dark wood. The clouds are constantly changing. At times they abound in fiery reds and purples of all types; at others they turn inward in menacing charcoals, covering the blues and unveiling the rain.

The clouds are constantly changing. At times they seem tangible: in reach as they are in sight. Other times they are but wisps that threaten to dissipate if she gets too close.

But still, she goes on, chasing clouds.

All of Dante's characters find themselves pondering the things they used to chase on earth- from opulent wealth to magnificent power; from carnal lust to intoxicating knowledge - these are their clouds.

The Story Teller Cuffs represents Dante’s narrative, at time slick and polished, at others harsher, textured, and torn, in its attempt tell the tale of his odyssey.

Com’io divenni allor gelato e fioco,
nol dimandar, lettor, ch’i’ non lo scrivo,
pero ch’ogni parlar sarebbe poco.

How chilled and faint I turned in that moment,
do not ask, reader, I do not write it,
since all words would fail

L’Inferno, Canto XXXIV
