This series of fused glass pieces expresses how I have come through major life changes of the last four years.
I’ve realized that dissolution and loss can allow us to lighten and rise. In order to overcome obstacles and fulfill our potential, we may need to shed pieces of our transient selves.
It can happen from a fracture or from an invitation; by grasping too tightly, or by letting go. We are recomposed in the break, drift and current of change.
