- “My outdoor series of installations ‘forest weavings’ utilize invasive plant species, such as ivy vine. Removing it from the forest, I weave it into nests, a symbol of shelter and protection. Once each sculpture is dried, they are then tucked safely back into the trees. My intent is to raise awareness to the fact that invasive, plant species have contributed to a huge decline in the diversity of our indigenous plants, endangering our native species.” Barbara DePirroParticipating Glass artist: Hiroshi Yamano, Doug Randall, Els Vanden Ende, Delores Taylor, Lin McJunkin, Tom Small, Annette Tamm, David Kerr, Merrilee Moore and Chuck Lopez.
