Pink Stem

  • Susan Kasson Sloan, Pink Stem, 1998, epoxy, glass, silver, Smithsonian American Art Museum, Gift of Betty Kasson in memory of Michael Kasson, 1998.101

Luce Center Label

Susan Sloan used epoxy resin, a special adhesive, to add pure pigment to Pink Stem. The contrast between the smooth iridescent greens and purples of the branch and the rough pink glass underneath transforms a brooch that was inspired by nature into a surreal, dreamlike environment.
