I was thinking about how a piece of art can connect us through the generations. As a gardener myself, I love the quiet, suggestive image of nurture and strength. The reds symbolize our blood ties to the past, while the greens are a reference to new hope for the future. The gold and silver suggest the richness of our ancestry and heritage. I draw
more glass around the top to give it the feeling of flowing down. I bend and twist the lines to give energy and dynamics to the imagery. The black glass that I developed will also glow or “flourese” when exposed to the ultraviolet rays of the sun.
