The Ambrosia series draws reference from ancient mythology. Adelman said of the work: “The title refers to a Greek nymph in a myth depicted on a historical Roman cage cup from the 4th century. The mythical, violent King Lycurgus tried to kill Ambrosia, a follower of the god Bacchus. She was turned into a vine and the glass cup depicts the scene of her wrapping around Lycurgus and dragging him to the Underworld.”
Visual elements of the Ambrosia Collection refer to this mythical vine imagery and capturing in the plot. Hand-linked brass chain is laid in a pattern into molten glass and then hand-blown so that delicate metal “drawings” take shape around each vessel’s final sphere.
Adelman added: “Chain as a material can offer both protection and entrapment. With Ambrosia, there is an interplay of ‘trapping the traps’ within the glass, while at once allowing the final form to be open. The end result evokes an imagined grasp on an elusive moment.” Each of the Ambrosia vessels is one-of-a-kind.
