This piece was inspired by the beauty and grace of wildflowers. Every spring these flowers come back bright, alluring, and full of life—only to last for several weeks, after which I await their return the next spring. The negative space where they once lay is parallel in beauty, inspiring me to create a negative space of flowing fabric throughout the piece.
Alyssa Ziemba is a glass artist whose glass studio is located outside of Oberlin, Ohio. She focuses primarily on recreating botanical life forms using different glass techniques.
