Inspired by her love of gardening, along with her young sons and their sense of discovery, Jen Violette skillfully sculpts molten glass into beautiful child sized hands holding various blown glass objects. When cooled, Violette sandblasts the hand sculptures to etch the surface of the glass, creating a softer look.
