Anna Boothe

Zieglerville, PA

With technical inspiration taken from a 19th C. French glass-casting technique known as pate de verre, my glass assemblages are created in a kiln by fusing sugary particles of lead crystal. The individual elements are first hand-carved in wax or cast directly from botanicals; and once transformed into glass, are combined to create multicolored jewel-like objects I refer to as talismans (hand-held, free-standing and wall-mounted), sculptural constructions and one-of-kind scent bottles. Imbued in each object is a reference to historical artifact, a sense of preciousness and the intangibility, yet familiarity that is associated with collaged memory.
