Organic Matter.
I'll be presenting two groups of new glass jewelry in my show "Organic Matter" at
Jewelerswerks Galerie in Washington, DC. The first is in line with work I've done in the past. They are forms carved from blown glass and then refined. I see them as geometric abstractions of flower petals.
The second group is a major departure for me. I have been casting from organic materials such as apples, oranges, celery, and asparagus as well as roughly textured pieces of wood. These are things we see
everyday. We take them for granted and become blind to the reality that they are sensual, elegant and beautiful shapes. I have transformed them into glass with the hope that viewers will examine them in a new light. They combine four of my passions, food, humor, jewelry and glass. The idea of wearing a stalk of celery as a brooch makes me smile.
