This piece was such a struggle. Some Foundlings come together so easily as if wanting to be created—others take months. In this work, the ruffled glass shade broke as I was tightening the last screw. I was heartbroken and I wrote about this mishap in a previous blog. I was able to get a second shade relatively quickly and yes, with the tightening of the last screw, I broke it… again. It took more then six months to get another shade and then it took several months more before I was brave enough to try to put this together again.
I am so relieved that I was able finish it. It was a frustrating process but worth it.
