Life is change. That is the only reliable certainty. It is constantly and continually progressing and altering. Unexpected and uncertain in outcome, it is certain in process.
Objects are our representatives. They “live” solid, fruitful, domestic, useful lives: independently functional. These objects, having given two to 200 years of faithful service, became hidden. In drawers, closets, dumps, underground, and in the ocean --waiting.
Now newly born, part of a different whole. Suspended to be gazed at, in reverence. In honor of their, and our, past lives. The beauty is in the years of touch as marked by many hands. The experiences portrayed trigger memories, of events lived and imagined. And of what will become.
We are constantly shedding our skin. We never stop growing and learning. Change is the only constant. Beauty is in the years of touch as marked by many hands.
Artist Laura Fuller's studio is in Maine. She has been creating three-dimensional stained glass pieces for more than twenty-five years. She began incorporating objects into her panels while still in school. When discouraged by her instructor from this innovative technique, she became determined to master the craft of integrating found objects into her complex glass pieces. She is primarily self-taught in her area of glass design, and is uniquely creating three-dimensional assemblage glass narratives.
Laura was a founding owner of the Hay Gallery in Portland, Maine. She just moved her studio from Munjoy Hill in Portland, Maine where she worked for ten years, often open to the public, to a gorgeous, private home studio.
