Christina Bothwell is the creator of these breathtaking sculptures. They are a combination of glass and ceramic. My heart stopped for a second when I first saw them. Aren’t they beautiful?
“In my work I am drawn to the processes of birth, death, and renewal. What lies below the surface fascinates me and I try to capture the qualities of the “unseen” that express the sense of wonder that I feel in my daily existence. I am attracted to glass because it can do everything that other sculptural media can; in addition, it offers an inner space and transmits light.”– Christina Bothwell

“My subject matter includes babies, animals, and children as they embody the essence of vulnerability that is the underlying theme in my work. Currently I am exploring metamorphosis as a topic, and have been incorporating figures within figures in my pieces. Within each glass figure there is a smaller figure seen through the surface of the glass.”
“I think of these pieces as souls, each being pregnant with their own potential, giving birth to new, improved versions of themselves.”
