Reflections of Covid

My current project is to study the effects of the coronavirus quarantine on mental health and translate those impressions into glass. These pieces were cast from my face. “Covid Scream” expresses the horrors of the pandemic and the internal struggles and challenges each individual across the world faced. “Nonessential Suffocation” is a reaction to the forced closure of my business during the lockdown. It expresses feelings of helplessness as my business and services were labeled non essential yet those same services bring so much joy to people that they often refer to the studio as their “happy place”. “Veil of Tears” weeps for the losses; loss of life, loss of health, loss of freedom, loss of jobs, and loss of safety.
