"I have been exploring safety glass as both material and metaphor. When safety glass is hit by a strong force, it doesn’t break into pieces —it shatters into a cracked surface. The once rigid surface can then be bent. It becomes alive —dangerous— but also pliable. The glass is in its most natural state when unbroken; It is the safe object intended to be free of imperfections, dust, or danger. But like a relationship, it is more real, alive, and true to itself when subjected to pressure. As I break the glass, I am helping it to be vulnerable and fragile. If vulnerability means that a person is susceptible to physical or emotional harm, then my work embraces the possibilities for strength in that condition."
