I’m telling tiny, #glass Marginalia stories for your ears. ‘The Fall’ and ‘Creation Myth’. ‘Pilgrim’ and for scale. I reckon if I had my ears pierced four times (some decades ago) in order to increase their potential for adornment, then starting with three and working upwards seems perfectly reasonable? Sculpted with molten glass, in the flame - directly onto very small, surgical steel posts. My sketchbook page and details from Les Tres Riche Heures du Duc de Berry in the background. A scallop shell was said to be carried by pilgrims to denote a reasonable amount of food they might beg without placing an undue burden on folks along their route if they were travelling with faith rather than food or money.
