This is the final result of my personal project. As I said when working through with this work this piece is about layer of grief. And the wire that hold the feathers in the front reference the Hope that hangs in front of people in times of grief that will lead them through.
I wasn't sure how this was going to turn out when working on it. It was a much different process working with fabric than working with paper. And up until this last week I really haven't liked the work. However, when I pushed it just a little bit further, past my insecurity of the work I found a place for it and really love how it has turned out.


  1. I love this piece. It alludes to so much of the thoughts and experiences I have explored this semester, but in a medium that I would be terrified to confront! And there is so much potential here for further explorations in this technique. I hope you will continue to post work here so that we can continue to see it progress. Beautiful sculpture.

  2. Brie, this piece is awesome! I really love how this whole project has progressed and I'm super excited about where its going. I really how the layers build on each other. The subtle differences in the shades of black is really nice too.
