Web Description: 
Semmes is an installation and performance artist who works primarily with textiles, but she has recently included ceramic and glass in her projects. This is one of a series of glass vessels that have a strong tactile quality. The knobby glass is pulled and stretched into shape, almost draping and flowing like fabric. With these pieces, Semmes examines the concept of glass as a dynamic solid, as a material in which motion may be arrested.
