We are watching with the rest of the world in shock and horror at the fire engulfing Notre-Dame Cathedral. Our hearts are with the city of Paris, the French people, and those working to stop the flames.

Valar morghulis / Valar dohaeris Who will live and who will die? A vanitas, like this one from the Chrysler Collection, is a symbolic work of art showing the transience of life, the futility of pleasure, and the certainty of death. They often contrast symbols of wealth and symbols of ephemerality and death. Vanitas themes were common in medieval funerary art. Most surviving examples are sculpture. By the 15th century, these could be extremely morbid and explicit, reflecting an increased obsession with death and decay also seen in, the the overlapping motif of the Memento mori (remember (that) you will die). All men must die / All men must serve #ChryslerMuseum #GOT #gameofthrones Vanitas Sculpture, ca. 1700, Swiss pine, Museum purchase, 2016.37 On view in Gallery 206

One last post from the Glass Art Society conference in St. Petersburg FL. The best part of the conference is seeing old friends and making new ones. These photos are of the Perry Glass Studio Assistant Alumni gathering, friends at the closing party, and Virginia Beach native David Sandidge after his demonstration. Community is what the conference is all about, thanks for tuning in. @glassartsociety #cmgs #GASstpete2019 #GAS2019 #GlassReunion
