Boundaries and willingness to break them are in the "Corset", custom built, unique work of an expert, as once again, Ebru couldn't accept any other way. Here again, Ebru is a brave woman, challenging herself, getting comfortable. Art has been more liberal than the societies, times that they initiated from. This is no different for Ebru, but here she is catching up quickly now.
....organic to glass, static representations to objects that desperately provoke one to touch, Ebru's commitment has seemingly common overarching themes. She seeks solid perfection, harmony with few contrasts, while being surprisingly adaptive, not so surprisingly simply hungry for peace and stability. Her choice of media is not only optimal for projecting the impact she is seeking but also often carefully thought of inviting others to her life, to share and step out of loneliness.
