Julie Anne Mihalisin, Asymmetry Necklace, 1992, silver, copper, gold, glass, Smithsonian American Art Museum, Gift of Don and Carol Wiiken and museum purchase, 1994.114
Julie Anne Mihalisin feels that glass's "natural fluid qualities have been repressed." In Asymmetry Necklace, the artist evokes the status that glass enjoyed as an art form in the ancient world. Rather than use glass as a kind of imitation gemstone, Mihalisin calls our attention to the fluidity of the medium, the quality that makes glass "glass."
Luce Object Quote"Glass is also a jewel, a one-of-a-kind jewel because it is made using a process that can never exactly be duplicated." Artist quoted in "Julie Mihalisin: Luminous Renderings," 1993
