Virtue was created to show the confliction a woman faces when she is transitioning from an adolescent into a young woman in today’s world. It seems to be such a battle to secure one’s virtue in a sea of sensuality by the very vessel that embodies her soul and mind at the time when she is blossoming into a young woman. The glass is handmade to show the flowers of her mind as it unfold as if the petals of a rose open to show all its beauty for the world to see. This hand sculptural relief in which forms extend out from the background to create a dimensional artwork. In Fusion with hand-blown glass makes this work of art, a very unique limited one of a kind edition.
