Joy often describes the series as her brain in motion. She enjoys watching the smiles on the viewers’ faces as they are drawn closer to the sculpture and then try to resist touching it. Her work is created with that in mind. The glass draws in the viewer and makes them want to touch as the bouncing wires make the glass dance. And she encourages the interaction.

 To create these sculptures, glass is flameworked onto stainless steel wires of various lengths.  The beads vary in shape and size. After annealing the glass and cleaning the wire, each wire is wound. These undulating wires are then soldered forming a crown and wire wrapped.

            This creation can be hung from the wall or in a window. The piece is approximately 18” long and 9" wide. Numerous pieces can be hung together to make a larger sculpture.
