Sculpture, "Crow House". Colorless plate glass, chunks of colored glass, fragments of twisted cane, paint, pencil, silicone adhesive; assembled, painted, applied decoration. Plate glass house predominately painted yellow with streaks of other colors. Each side of house includes a hand-drawn element: a pencil outline of a bird, the word "FIVE", a pencil-drawn curvilinear form (perhaps part of a snake), and reddish-brown form outlined in pencil (perhaps an elongated, distorted leg). Small fragments of colored glass and twisted glass canes adhered to exterior walls.
