This unique sculpture was created by Shari Mendelson and exemplifies the artist’s inventive methods and technical skill.

Mendelson lives and works in Brooklyn and upstate New York. She is inspired by art history—particularly by ancient Greek, Roman, and Islamic glass and terra-cotta artifacts. Her work explores what the material remains of peoples mean for posterity and what the discarded and forgotten material of our own civilization shall someday say about us. With, in her own words, “equal parts play and reverence,” Mendelson reinterprets the works of the past using found pieces of discarded plastics. Almost without fail, at first glance, viewers mistake Mendelson’s work for ancient objects.
