From Darkness to Light Collection
35″ x 18″
Nativ Ha’asara is a settlement literally on the border with Gaza. There we met a local ceramic artist who shared some of her experiences living in the shadow of the conflict. She invited us to participate in her peace project, decorating the gray security barriers with colorful ceramic tiles. These imposing gray cement walls are within feet of the border fence with Gaza.
This window incorporates fused glass elements designed to represent the colorful ceramic tiles. It also incorporates wire knit elements to represent the barbed wire fencing and olive branches held by the doves.
The window measures 35″ x 18″ including 1/2″ zinc came frame. It is constructed in the copper foil method. Designed and constructed in 2018.
