Symbolism is an important element in representing the ethereal style that Siobhan Healy aims for in her work. She uses symbolic botanical imagery to express mystical ideas, emotions, and states of mind. She incorporates silver, fusing the metal into the surface of the glass. Symbolically, silver represents growth, the cycles of the moon and fertility. The silver works in relation to the glass in more than one way, it can be dark when the light shines through the glass from behind, while when the lit from the front, the silver is reflective.
