I believe that it is both natural and good for beings to mate and pair for life despite the knowledge that life and marriage are both full of challenges, pain, and difficulties.

Wedding nights may not always be unalloyed roses and joy, but the dreams, hope, and fantasies of the prospective bride are symbolized by the otherworldly costumes worn during the ceremony.

This work is part of a large installation which includes gown, bouquet, trousseau items and clothing for the groom. They are made of steel and aluminum wire mesh, solder formed into buttons, plus wire, beads, and rhinestones.
