Stronger Together

Artist Statement

When I saw the Breathe project I was intrigued to try to make a mask out of glass. I placed individual stringers of glass side by side, horizontally and vertically to represent how we are all so tightly weaved together in this. I chose blues and greens to emulate a feeling of the globe. The black stringers are the virus that is spreading across the globe, touching us all in some way. Individual stringers are very fragile, fused together they become stronger, however the finished glass is still weaker than most pieces of glass. COVID showed me this is true in our lives, our normal routines and things we take for granted are so much more fragile than we realize!
