"Breaking Out"

I stand in awe of the courage of people who break out of a safe but fundamentally dishonest life to show the world their authentic self. In particular, gay and trans people who can’t live a lie a moment longer, whatever the consequences. How can anyone think this is a choice, rather than an expression of truth? My piece shows the act of will to force open the restraining seedcase or chrysalis, emerging trembling but resolute into a new and brighter world.

Type of glass used: Bullseye powder, frit and sheet.

Type of kiln used: Paragon 7
