This work explores notions of beauty, the beauty industry and its effects upon women and girls.  It features an archetypal madonna, crowned with scalpels and syringes and marked for liposuction treatment, a bulimic Rapunzel, medieval scales (traditionally representing the weighing of souls on entry to Heaven) quoting the long-running TV advert and an angelic Granny knitting clone-like Barbie dolls.   A woman shoots a mirror, while above Satan sneaks off with knowledge piled on his back. Below, two little girls observe from a grey world of plastic rubbish.
The original work was made using hand blown, flashed glass which was cut, sandblasted, diamond filed, engraved, painted, fired and layered.
