International Bead Biennale Artist 2022

These beads diameter 50mm and width 60mm inspired by corals were made by combining several techniques of glass art such as lampwork, making glass murrines, molding and cold working.

This work on coral, both animal and mineral, simultaneously represents the fragility and the strength of life. Each bead can be seen as a cell, virus, seed, worm, coral or mineral structure. Recalling the origin of life. It illustrates the competition between organisms. Can both be seen as a "Potential" of life, or the "Degradation" to dust, death.
