Tipping Point, two pieces of sculpted glass literally in balance, was inspired by my time in the Arctic.
Since 2006 I have kayaked in Greenland and across portions of the Northwest Passage. Faced with the endlessly fascinating and rugged beauty of 1000-year-old ice and cliffs showing centuries of strata, and aware of how rapidly those environments are changing, I returned from the Arctic with a renewed focus to protect and showcase the natural world.
Constructed entirely from salvaged building glass, a material that otherwise would be buried in landfills because it cannot be recycled, Tipping Point was one of my first works to give voice to the beauty and vulnerability of the Arctic landscape.
