Grow Love

Artist Statement

After my first attempt at a fused glass mask it was suggested I try incorporating traditional stained glass into one. I was still stuck on the idea that we are all in this together, so I fused the front garden panel. The first fear of COVID-19 and separation from family caused a lot of anxiety for me. My reaction to subsequent newscasts was that we needed more love and kindness. I wanted to build a garden that would “Grow Love”. The sides of the mask are traditional lead stained glass, the colours of water, earth and sky. Walking each day I find the air and land brighter and healthier, perhaps a positive result of everyone staying home!
