2007 Finalist

Lotus Dreaming 1

Kiln formed glass
13 H x 45 W x 44 D cm

Urban scapes depicting facets of crowds and architecture reflect environments created in the pursuit of modern societies. Contrasted against the traditional and highly decorative motif of the lotus flower, this new body of work seeks to question the paradoxes inherent in our quest for progress and inspiration.
