TRACY STRESSING

Name of Work:"HOPE"
Third Line:Bullseye Glass Artists 2020

"HOPE"

My piece HOPE was made during the recent pandemic. I made this for the now Sir Tom Moore who raised so much money for nhs charities. I am a key worker and have been working since the pandemic and found creating very hard in these unsettling times. I saw Captain Tom Moore and his inspirational hopeful story and felt so emotional about his story I really wanted to create something. My father is veteran who I sadly haven"t seen the pandemic started and I felt making something with poppies would not only be a tribute to Sir Tom Moore but also to my father. The rainbow was to bring happiness with all the colours and I felt happy making a unique piece. I HOPE it inspires who ever reads my story x
