Darcy Stephanie Smith
At twenty years of age, Darcy Smith has endured so much in such a short amount of time. Having experienced a nearly fatal car accident during 2014, this did not stop her to proceed on with finishing her second year studies in Bachelor of Fine Arts at Monash University in Caulfield. Darcy’s practice reflects on the ideas of change through the effects of traumatic experience with installation and sculpture. Her glasswork in particular is focused on the manipulation and limitations of the physical substance of glass; strong, fragile and subject to change much like the body. With strong endeavors for the future in mind, she is now the proud recipient of the Pilchuck Glass School Partner Scholarship Award for 2015; a perfect way to bring a tragic accident into light with amazing and positive results and effects.
