Maker's statement

Decaying Perfection shows how even the perfect form degenerates when ravaged by time and use. I took a pattern designed with the help of some high tech software, laser cut a very precise form, made a wax mold which was then hand tampered (to create the "decay"). This was then cast in glass.
