"Amore Eterno" (Everlasting Love)
was born out of the tragedy that took place on December 14, 2012 in Sandy Hook, CT, but also speaks to every mother who has lost a child. This piece conveys the strength of the bond between mother and child.
"The Last Thing I Gave" was created based on the story of a Holocaust survivor, my friend, Elizabeth "Betty" Deutsch. She and her sister were given the task of pairing shoes after other prisoners were exterminated.
"Quiet Desperation" was created following 9/11. The roughness surrounding the figure represents the destruction. Although she is part of that - her hair blends in with the rough texture, and she is partially engulfed by it - she is strong enough to overcome.. Her hand breaks through the bronze behind her, and the words "faith, love and hope" are carved into the bronze.
