Amy West presents her first solo exhibition with RiverStones,
in New York at the R|R Gallery
2014, November 20 - January 6

This exciting exhibition of glass includes vessels and jewelry from Amy West's most recent body of work, entitled RiverStones. The work is inspired by the river Ardo, tributary to the Piave river in the Veneto. West describes the river as a source of peace, relaxation and inspiration. The light of the river, the movement of the current, the color of the rocks, and the beauty of the tumbled stones are all cited as inspiration. West says "The river is alive, and it makes its presence known to those paying attention." While comforting however, the river's constancy and strength is accompanied by dramatic change and shift. All of these expressions from the river are seen by West as metaphors for how we are tumbled and shaped by life, hopefully to come out of our personal experiences as rounded and smooth as the stones of the riverbed.
