Item details

At the entrance to the Glen Park Branch Library, visitors are welcomed by a large wall relief composed of circular elements primarily of glass and metal, designed by Linda Raynsford and Reddy Lieb and inspired by the history and ecology of Glen Park. A poem written by local poet Diane DiPrima for William Blake is fired into a circular glass medallion near the bottom of the artwork.
“The world is in constant flux and how we recreate our lives within the context of community at this time is what interests me. I see technology, the double-edged sword of this century, as being the necessary means for engaging interaction. I’ve used sound and video in some of my more experimental works. Yet it is glass, the medium that I continue to be fascinated with, that acts as a lens to focus on the importance of being in balance with the earth and restoring this feminine consciousness in the world.” –Reddy Lieb

Meet the Creator

Fused Glass and Beyond-functional and Art work

“It has always been my belief that art and creativity is a transformative process. Transformation of feeling into an idea and idea into form. I have been working with recycled materials for many years for my creative expression. The object and the material, glass, acts as metaphor to create meaning.

Glass is abundant in its ambiguities. It can be fragile yet durable, shattered or whole, dangerous or protective. Glass’s transparency allows us to see beneath the surface. What is beneath the surface is what is real to me. It is where I find the strongest connection to my intuition and an inquiry into the nature of the world and our relationship to it. Beyond what we see is an energy system that motivates and defines who we are. It is a system that connects us to our spirit and allows us to form relationships with all beings and things."
