Interior : Exterior :: Fragility : Strength

 

This two-person collaborative exhibit explores the physical and physiological relationships, which resides between the interior and exterior of certain objects. Entirely worked out in the medium of glass, these pieces involve a variety of techniques: blown, cast, cold worked and lamp worked, as a means to present a metaphoric and symbolic viewing of the boundaries and permeability within our human emotions.
