Never Broken

Item details

This commission is made of ten different glass squares. Construction began for UCHealth's newest hospital in Highlands Ranch in Spring 2017. I initially began imbuing the piece with the energy of healing, strength, and love to assist all who needed it in the hospital. While processing the pieces in the kiln, one of them cracked cleanly down the middle, as pictured. Rather than fix the piece, I heard a divine message of emerging intention. Many in hospitals with illness and injury feel broken. Instead of hearing that those patients needed to be fixed, I heard a message of "We were never broken." That became the new intention within the piece. We are shown the cracks so they may be healed and emerge from the experience better than before. Ultimately what is significant is that we do not identify our own ailments, struggles, and flaws as depreciating our worth. Alternatively we could wear life's battle scars proudly and know that our value comes from within.

Art As A Gateway To Viewing Yourself From A Higher Perspective

Colorado-based artist, Natalie Ventimiglia, explores her inner-world through a spiritual lens. Utilizing the magical properties of glass, Ventimiglia creates colorful, expressionistic, conceptually self-reflective compositions. Her glass artwork is both whimsical and systematic, mirroring two worlds in opposition. Natalie creates art that is transformative, art that creates an experiential environment that transforms our spaces into portals to higher consciousness. The art itself opens a gateway to your Higher Self and influences you to reach your highest potential and awaken your Divine purpose.

How you view this art is how you view life. Each piece holds space for you to see yourself from a different perspective and gives you clues or glimpses of what you need to know in this moment. As you shift so does the art. This art doesn't stay static. It evolves with you and you'll see something different over time. When you see something different, it means you have shifted too. Be open to see what the art wants to tell you as it is a message from your Higher Self. The more people who awaken to this possibility, the bigger shift we make as a species and the distance between us all eventually diminishes.
