A Wedding Gobblet
Untitled, stained glass mosaic and broken glass goblet, 9.5" x 12", 2012" ~SOLD
Below is an angle view which shows some of the three dimensional elements of the mosaic.
This project revolved around the breaking of the glass - a Jewish wedding tradition. The central element of the piece is the broken glass which marks the beginning of married life for the young couple. From there a new life unravels the way that a Koru fern unravels slowly and symbolizes new life, growth, strength, and peace which I think are all good wishes for a young couple. One of the reasons the mosaic is dictated by the color green is because the bride loves green. Another symbolic reason is what green stands for: healthy relationships, life, fertility, balance, growth, learning and harmony which all apply to a happy marriage.
