I created this work in response to the multitude of vulnerable experiences I had as a mother of young twins. Filling the sac with liquid, protected only by a thin membrane is a metaphor for what it was like to have every decision be a risk with potentially grave consequences. I learned to trust myself as I never had before.

Molly Epstein received degrees in Metals and Jewelry from Tyler School of Art (BFA 2002) and the University of Washington (MFA 2008). Throughout her life, her work has been driven by a deep interest in the physical manifestation of emotional pain. Recently, she has relocated and is renovating a new studio space in Austin, Texas.
