This series of fused glass pieces expresses my recent life experience. Dissolution and loss can be a positive force, allowing us to lighten and rise. In order to overcome obstacles and fulfill our potential, we must shed pieces of our transient selves.
It may 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.
Fused glass with mixed media backgrounds, 8" by 10"
