Sculpture: Glass, Found Objects, Woodcut on Glass, Wood.
Each of the pieces in this series of glass vials sculptures takes nearly a month to be created and involves a painstaking, multi-step process that begins with preparing each small glass container. First removing the labels, a step that’s repeated 4 to 30 times depending on amount of glue used to fix them to the glass that needs to be completely clean of any debris. To clarify: LT cleaned over 1,000 small containers before she started designing this series! When time came to shape them, she had to place them directly inside the kiln, positioning them one by one according to the design. They were then fused at 1500F in the kiln, and cold fused on reused pressed wood base. The beauty of Circle of Life tells the story not only of how it was made, but evokes a connection with the larger natural world.
