Peretti’s work expresses innocence, vulnerability, the essence of memories, and human nature. Of the pieces displayed here, Snow Child is a hyper-realistic life-sized milk glass sculpture of a young child that appears to lie lifeless with milk glass birds around the child. Dorothea’s Leg is a glass leg that gradates from blue to white and has an opening down the Leg’s center. Glass Notes are mixed media napkins with glass imagery on each napkin.
