“Life’s Choices-Like Forks in the Road” – Vicki Green
Vicki’s show, titled “Life’s Choices-Like Forks in the Road” captures
the parallel of how choices in our lives can be symbolized by forks in the
road. Some life choices are made from a deeply personal level while
others may be influenced by events, other people or a myriad of
circumstances. Each choice leads in a direction that we either stay with,
or turn around and change roads. We later learn that some life choices
were not correct for us but rendered invaluable experiences.
Vicki’s show consists of 9 10”X10” fused glass wall hangings mounted on
wooden frames. All of the glass is small cross cut pieces of glass called
murinni that Vicki makes in her studio which involves layering many
different glass colors which is melted in a kiln, stretched, cooled, and
cut into small cross-sections and placed on end to create specific or
abstract designs. Additionally Vicki has created 3 vessels involving cut
glass placed on end to create depth.
Vicki has worked with glass for over 35 years. She began as a stained
glass artist and after a trip to Italy in 2004 returned to learn about
fusing glass and that since became her passion. Vicki has lived in the
Pacific Northwest her entire life and currently resides in Vancouver, WA.
