"Once you reach a certain experience level, you reach this 'flow'-- this place where you are connected to the glass. You could call it spiritual. I think of it as the Zen Zone. It is a dance. The fire sets the tempo - and the glass is the music."
In this sculptural glass series, Elodie Holmes explores one of the most beautiful and elemental forms in nature-- the egg. Using size, color, texture and the fragile quality of glass itself, Holmes plays with the symbolism and emotional content of the egg form, hoping to evoke something primal in all of us. Each sculpture is handblown and sandblasted, and many use glass colors created by the artist.
