Overview

Sculptural female bust encrusted in art glass, copper springs and paint on a wood and copper fittings pedestal.

Goals

This piece was commissioned for a contemporary home in Chicago. One look at the home gave me inspiration as to color and need for a powerful, detailed expression.

Process

The homeowner and I kept in contact verbally and through photographs during the process of making the piece.

Additional Information

The name Delilah is a biblical name implying beauty, delicacy, strength and cunning.
