This piece represents the teamwork between my parents that inspired who I am today. The hands are casting of my parents’ hands, one of my mothers and one of my fathers to create a piece that expresses the effort to provide a life for me. After they got married, my parents wanted a child but could not have one of their own so they went through the adoption process and found me. The neon is a representation of the knowledge and life that my parents have given me. I chose glass to reflect the fragile nature of their relationship and their connection to me.
