Flameworker Kimberly Thomas has a penchant for the imperfect, the dilapidated, and the objectionable. Her sculptural work depicts the sometimes-grotesque flaws and idiosyncrasies that make us unique—glass teeth hang as pendants, vessels that look like severed fingers, and small bottles that sport toothy smiles.
