The beauty of the illumination of etched layers of glass can be seen in this image. This series of layered glass sculptures consists of a front layer of carved one-half inch thick glass with a clear layer behind that and a double etched mirror as the back. Double etching the mirror allows light to pass through the etched away silvering. The pieces are wall-mounted sculptures. The mirror concept is for the viewer to see their reflection as they contemplate the depicted ìsinî. The artistís philosophical bent differs from the traditional artistic stance of depicting the horrors of sin by showing that the sin appears to be attractive. In Gluttony, a bloated carved glass ìstomachî is superimposed over layers of wheat, representing the staple food of the world.
