This large yet fragile work explores the limits of glass. Created using a torus-shaped plaster mould which has been filled with powdered glass and then fired in the kiln, the resulting work is thin and hollow with areas of cracking, shrinking, and dripping on its surface. These material transformations are a visual trace of heat as it emerges and transforms the glass, a process that must be carefully controlled to prevent the brittle structure from breaking.
