Artwork Statement:These lovely lily flowers are relevant to my Art History experience with my craft mentor Sandra Alfoldy. The candle holder with anticlastic and synclastic forming techniques and the green patina effect is in the traditional Victorian Memento Mori style. This piece is my way to memorialize her while recognizing and appreciating her help in my academic experience.
