Ants and the Grasshopper
Ants and the Grasshopper 2014 18x18 Glass Panel Glass fused with cut shapes, multiple colors, sandblasting On a cool autumn day the grasshopper felt weak with hunger. He spied ants working with their harvest of seeds and grains and asked for a bit to keep him alive. The ants asked him what he had been doing all summer and he replied that he had been playing his fiddle and singing since the weather turned warm. The ants refused to share their bounty because they’d been working all summer to gather it and thought the idle grasshopper deserved nothing.
