Artwork Statement
In winter 2014, pneumonia led me to embrace the existence and significance of every breath I take. By concentrating on my breathing, I was able to inject feelings into my glass works. I created a series of hanging installations as testimony of the uniqueness every breath I take and the aesthetics and meanings in glass art.
