Ideas relating to ritual and ceremony have interested me for some time, and the visual possibilities of things archaeological, and their potential for the expression of ritual ideas seemed to be the best combination to express how I felt about precious objects, containment and the vessel. I summarized these thoughts in my thesis proposal: I intend to create a group of objects that relate closed vessel forms to archaeological or ritual characteristics. I will use glass and, when appropriate, other media. This report will define and explain my point of view on each of the issues in the proposal, illustrate the development of the forms of the pieces, explain the choices and permutations of materials, and show how the ideas, forms and materials evolved into the finished pieces.
