CHALICE (2004-2005)

In many churches, it is traditional for the faithful to donate chalices in memory of a family member or a friend. The glass elements in these two installation projects function similarly. They present the fragility of life and remind us of the vitality, spirit, and sacrifice of those who have come before us. In the second installation, Humble Cup is a modest vessel made of hand-turned and hand-cut wood from a walnut tree.
