"Near White Sands, New Mexico, on July 16th, 1945, at 5:29:45 am Mountain War Time, a nuclear fireball sucked the white sand of the Jornada del Muerto desert high into a still dark sky. The melted sand returned to the earth as a rain of molten glass. Scientists named these glass shards Trinitite, after the site, Trinity. At the time, artist Judy Tuwaletstiwa was 4 years old. Haunted by the specter the United States released in detonating atomic bombs in New Mexico, Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Tuwaletstiwa turned to sand and fire, as artist in residence at Pilchuck Glass School in 2000, to explore this primal creative/destructive act. In a second residency the following year, she explored the Holocaust using blown glass." (publisher web site). (Inventory #: 159520)
