update 11,17.09. glass sculpture after it has completed slumping in the kiln

Glass Box

Have you ever felt limited by a title, your race, or your origins? Have you been in a situation where, because you are known for this, you cannot be capable of that? You feel trapped, constrained, unappreciated.

I am attempting to capture that constricting feeling you get when someone places you in that invisible box. The human person is a powerful creature, capable of growth and full of life. And when someone places infinite capabilities into a finite "box," there is going to be an insurrection in some form or another.

  1. The milled project looked really great in class. Do you have any ideas for the finish?
