Artist in Residence: Mielle Riggie (October 2009)

Mielle Riggie works with both the strength and fragility of glass to illustrate the dynamics of human emotion or conditions. In her residency at The Studio, Riggie is creating cast-glass sculpture amplifying elements in nature, such as leaves or roots, and recombining disparate parts in ways that exaggerate the tension and balance of humans with their surroundings.
