Ebeling points out, however, that there is a fourth dimension—an oft-overlooked dimension of the spirit. Sticks and stones, and the spirit residing in them, are the body and soul of each piece. Her art is the manifestation of a connection between the universe and herself. She says she is happy to extend this connection to all who appreciate her work. As pers
