Dust & Glitter proudly announces the opening of “she takes flight”; featuring new glass work by Amy “Firefly” Griffin.
she takes flight
by amy “firefly” griffin
Glass permits Amy to create a dance with heat, color, silence, and feathered sound- pulling her gracefully in and out, a push and pull of all the elements; rhythmically shaping itself with gravity, heat, and paper.
After surviving an almost fatal car accident in 2010, the dance that Amy Griffin shares with glass shifted to healing her core self; namely, her spine. Last year Amy began examining various posterior x-ray views of her spine from before and after the accident and became curious of how, after years of transforming the darkness, her spine looks now. The process of fabricating ‘She Takes Flight’ has transformed how Amy perceives strength.
With an abstract eye, open heart, and forever curious soul, these new glass sculptures are a symbol of her knowing.
