Blown, Found & Assembled Glass 

Growing up within the traditions of Catholicism left little room for gray in my life. The black and white commandments of the Bible led me to question my own beliefs. I tried to maintain my ‘innocence’, through purity—deemed precious by the church. However, much like these objects contained in the bell jars, it was fragile. Looking back I realize not all of us were meant to live in glass houses forever.
