This artwork is composed of glass I melted in a kiln, cut glass, tumbled glass, and tile. The figures of Adam and Eve were cut from glass and painted with Reusche traditional glass paint mixed with glove oil and fired in a kiln. Each component was glued onto a piece of Wedi board (a board also used for tiling bathrooms because it is composed of a foam center sandwiched between cement board), then grouted and framed. The Eve figure is juggling dichroic glass fruit. Dichroic glass is especially reflective. The Adam figure is contemplating. This work captures a moment in time when people have a choice to make on which path to follow. We constantly are faced with decisions we think are big or tiny choices and we are bad judges on which are which. In this case, Adam and Eve made the wrong choice and sin entered the world. This piece was not inspired by one scripture but by how our free will affects our paths in this life and the next.
Just me! Elena Wright
This is an original work. I could not duplicate it because many of its components were made in my kiln and I also put in found objects. If someone wants this work, they should come to Wilmington, NC, and buy it. It will probably be inherited by one of our children. It would be extremely hard to ship. It is priced at $600 plus 7% NC sales tax. It is currently on display in my downtown studio/gallery at theArtWorks.™ 200 Willard St., Wilmington, NC 28403.
I just finished a series of angel collages and they are not happy. I am currently working on multi-media landscapes. In the downtown studio are fused glass bowls and platters too. I don't teach. Time is winding down so home duties and creating art are my priorities.
