Anima is a new series of blown glass vessel sculptures. In Latin, “anima” translates as breath, life, or vital force. With these works, the breath is captured and made into solid and visible form. The works resemble alien life forms, deep sea creatures, or beings in the process of evolution. As with the Pranayama series, bronze jacuzzi jet nozzles puncture the surface of the clear glass to symbolize the release and escape of the breath that formed the vessels.
