Jude Schlotzhauer-glass and mixed media, ESCAPE '21


Dimensions: 17″ x 10″ x 3.5″
Materials: cast and fused glass, bird skeletons

A friend broght me these swallows who had perished inside a chimney. Perfectly preserved, I wanted to give them new life. I made 3 diffrerent cabinets for them before I was satisfied that their final reliquary was worthy of their sacrifice. I tried to give them a beautiful resting place and wings for “escape.”
