This body of work was completed by Rachael Strittmatter ’20 (Glass) for her capstone.
“Drawing from my personal experiences, I investigate notions of memory and the everyday,” Strittmatter said. “My work thinks through questions about transformation, impermanence and presence through various projects that depend upon the materiality of the glass, the glass-working process and glass-working phenomena. I want to know how to capture a fleeting moment. By analyzing the world around me and how I interact with it on an everyday basis, I want to make the space slow down so I can see beauty in the ordinary.”
