Title: Strong Women, Precious Pearls

Description: Celebrating the hard-working women of the Bayview community, I have created three generations of women through clothing sculpted in wire.

While the viewer has the choice to focus on the exterior and concentrate on the clothing, they also have the option of looking at the invisible person within the sculpture. In this instance, my goal is to project souls of endurance, perseverance and strength. When approaching this project my first idea stemmed from the idea of many generations under one roof. “I thought about all of the families with the woman as the head of household and how this area is home to many families with multiple generations gathered under one roof.”
