Broken Ornament is a play on the traditional glass globe holiday ornament. Appearing from one side as a smooth sphere, from other angles the excavated form reveals the jagged texture of the interior. Recast in solid gypsum cement, the white material suggests a moment between ruin and construction, frozen in time.
