Over 50 years, 6 women have been getting together once a week, to share their opinions about human relationships, faith, family, social matters… Their purpose is to achieve a personal growth in an environment which usually values professional or economic goals.
This is a tribute to these women, to their relationship, and the time they dedicated to improve themselves and their environments

Title:Queen Bee Cell

Description: The Art of beekeeping has been practiced by many civilizations and cultures over the last 10,000 years. The bee has been adopted as a powerful symbol with many different meanings. The tradition of glass making has been practiced for the last 3,600 years. I have combined these two ancient traditions by infusing the honey gathered from my native Welsh black bees into my glass to make my Glass Art.

Title:Tashlich/To Cast Away

Description: The Hebrew word Tashlich means "to cast away." In Jewish tradition, Tashlich is performed on the first day of the Jewish New Year, where participants symbolically cast off their past year's wrongdoings by tossing pebbles or breadcrumbs into flowing water. I created these small vessels to contain our wrongdoings, symbolizing the forgiveness promised by this ancient ritual.

Description: Quilt Spoon takes the form of a cup-shaped piece of glass featuring a detail from a traditional Welsh whole cloth quilt, suspended from a well used wooden spoon, evoking shared conversation.
