Creating these outrageous creatures is, for Salt, a cathartic experience. As an artist Salt infuses the thoughts, emotions and ideas that are relevant to him into his creations, thus exercising his stresses and concerns. At a glance they may seem intimidating or even sinister. However they are actually meant to be companions to the end users and to help those who come in contact with them to relax, gain perspective, and realign their thoughts. The outward appearance that involves teeth and claws sends a message that this creature can and will defend itself and it’s allies, thus the Salt pipe acts as both gargoyle and meditative tool for the user.
