Rose Colored Glass Box

Marrying the symbolism of stones, glass houses and fragility with the beauty behind the concept of 'viewing the world through rose-colored glasses' I bring you this lovely mixed media assemblage from the imagination of a true optimist and hopeless romantic.

Encased in a true antique box of glass perches a woman with bird like features. Her body is true salvaged antique bisque-fired doll lightly clasping a flower to her heart. Her bird-like features are hand-molded from a mummified parakeet skull out of high-resistance silicone and then intricately hand-detailed as if she were always made of true bone.


Her dress is a combination of vintage trims and notions hand-crafted to scale with lovely scalloped edges and a delicate collar of Venetian lace. Perched atop her head is a bonnet of true dried and treated rose petals to match the garden of little blood-red roses that surround her.

She has but one wing serving to remind her each day that even if she cannot fly today she is halfway there. Though she may appear hopeless or maybe even foolish for her dreaming, she believes, perhaps, one day she will grow her second wing to lift and release her from her glass barricade.

In the meantime, she is poised in a preserved state of beauty. Content with what she has rather than that which she does not possess.
