These sculptures in kiln formed glass and upcycled industrial parts are an expression of the delicate balance between the growing need for built environments and efforts to sustain natural resources.
A native Nashvillian and maker since childhood, Alice was born into a family of mechanics, machinists and builders for whom reuse and recycling were a necessary way of life. Observing the rapid, metropolitan transformation of her hometown, this body of work developed when Alice discovered some leftover industrial parts and windshield glass slag destined for the landfill. Inspired by the potential of what she saw as inherently connected, beautiful and useful she began combining seemingly disparate materials into artifacts both industrial and organic in design.
