Strength Fragility Bikini
Wearable Glass Sculpture by Cindy Poole
Artist Statement: Initially motivated by a bra art exhibition. “The beauty of glass has intrigued mankind since they worked out how to harness the properties of sand and heat. It is therefore only fitting that it is used to highlight the beauty of a woman’s body, whilst reflecting both the strength and fragility of life itself.” We decided it was time that this bikini was to be worn and enjoyed…
