Fractured Fashion

Samantha Lewis's avatar Samantha Lewis

“modern conservation: activism through fractured fashion” As a Michigan native I was inspired to create a sculpture to shed light on the fragile conditions of our lakes and rivers. Portraying the movement of water, I used glass in shades of swirled blue and aqua. Each glass piece is knotted together by a cotton cording “net” that overlays a base of sand colored tulle. The tulle cascades off the right hip alluding to the flow of sand dunes. These coastal themes are accented with a necklace of hand-selected drift wood, shells, and distressed chain. Thanks for your vote!
