|Untitled, stained glass mosaic and broken glass goblet, 9.5" x 12", 2012 SOLD|
Above is the front view of one of my recent commissions. This project revolved around incorporating the broken glass from the Jewish wedding ritual of breaking the glass into a mosaic that would be a work of art in itself. The central element of the piece had to be the broken glass from the wedding day. I thought of this as a symbol of the beginning of married life for the young couple. From the broken stem, a new life unravels the way that a Koru fern (spiral in shape) unravels slowly and symbolizes new life, growth, strength, and peace. I think all these symbols are good wishes for the young couple. The wedding goblet was specifically green because it is the bride's favorite - that is one reason that the mosaic is dictated by the color green. In addition green stands for: healthy relationships, life, fertility, balance, growth, learning and harmony which all apply to a happy marriage.
