“Heart Conditions,” sculptural mosaics

In her latest series of sculptures, “Heart Conditions”, Karen Ami examines love and transformation through ornate and color-saturated works of clay, glaze, glass and wood. Using the heart as a metaphor for growth and transformation, these sculptures depict the passages of maternal, spiritual, sexual, and mythic love. The series reflects the pain and elation of an open heart through the fragmentation of glass and seductiveness of clay.
