Luce Center Quote

"I aim to create forms that are new, but somehow familiar by appealing to our desire for honesty and our endearment to natural forms." Artist's statement, 1993

Luce Center Label

Necklace embodies Julie Anne Mihalisin's commitment to "truth-to-materials." In this piece, the artist is careful to allow the natural, fluid properties of the glass to coexist with the precious metal in which it is mounted.
