Cage (2020)

Janet Morton



multiple of 12

cocktail straw, polymer clay, glass bead, jump ring, yogurt lid & thread

5 ½  x 1 x 1 inches each


“I created this multiple specifically for Canaries in a Coal Mine, cutting and stitching black cocktail straws (given to me by Paul) to form a cage. Although the imagery of the tiny sacrificial songbird is literal, I found myself thinking of the billions of discarded straws in our oceans inseparable from the cage of our addiction to convenient consumption”
