From Exhibiting You:

This three-dimensional fused, slumped glass sculpture was inspired by the mist-shrouded mountains of the Japanese Alps. Portraying a solid, formidable structure like a mountain in something so delicate and fragile as glass was a challenge, as was my wish to transform a rigid piece of glass into a flowing object.

The ability of glass to be shaped without breaking serves here as a metaphor for women's potential to overcome the proverbial "glass ceiling" and achieve their goals in creative ways.
