Earth: Playground For Growth
atPrivate ResidenceDenver, CO
This piece is composed of 27 individual mounts assembled as squares of 3. Each set of 3 is mounted at varying distances from the wall to resemble steps. The pieces have a grainy texture, as they are made from frit, or crushed glass, and kiln-fired at a relatively low temperature to maintain that texture. It was created to represent Earth as a place for growing through play and learning lessons. The varying mounts of the steps resemble being at differing levels of growth in different areas. Ultimately, I wanted the message to be a reminder that we came to this world to grow and learn, and the process should be a fun one.
