Chang Artist's Statement

H is for House, Harry, Home and lots of other nice things

Five separately cast lead crystal planes interlock to create this structure of fragility, light and weight.
I like the way the letter is an integral part of the structure itself.
The H is the house as the house is the H. Like a home, a house, and
life itself, this sum is greater than its parts, yet dependent on them.
It is a precarious balance where each component has its own place.

The furniture within the House transforms it into a Home.
As blood is the elixir of life, this red color injects life into this Home.

The fact that it is created out of glass lends an additional dimension to this
combination of form with medium.
Being glass, it makes one want to look in and through, and to be careful.
Behavior that should also be applied to real homes and the lives lived within them.
