This series of work was developed through experimentation during the Covid-19 Pandemic with the goal of spreading hope, love, joy, and beauty to a hurting world. Tired of being surrounded by constant negativity, I decided to focus my energy on things I was thankful for. This created a new perspective which allowed for greater creativity, energy and excitement as I dove into experimentation. In the process, I developed new techniques and exciting new classes. Inspired by the beauty of mandalas and lace doilies, these pieces are made from individual grains of glass and remind us of the fragility, beauty and value of life.
