After conceiving of the idea of building a chandelier from scratch in February, the glasswork is finally nearing completion. Leaning in to the female glassblowing community to help create the glasswork in the hot shop, complete the cold working of each lighting fixture once cooled, and eventually construct a canopy beneath which the glass will be suspended, the creation of this piece has already been an ever-changing evolution. This piece will embrace the beauty that is bound in the cyclical nature of the female essence. In a concise visual manner, it will essentially describe each phase of this cyclical way of life, illustrated with rose gold glass, and 24K gold leaf paper.
