Other Remarks:
According to Jerry Gorovoy, the artist's assistant, and Felix Harlan, of Harlan & Weaver, New York, "Glass Object" was made during a period when the artist was routinely tracing objects found around her house. This composition is based on a Lobmeyr candy dish the artist had on her work table among other little objects, such as a metronome and various art supplies. The candy dish is made of clear glass; the spiral is the artist's invention.
