Melanie Leppla: Tall Red Cairn


This cairn, born in fire and light, represent accomplishments, knowledge and experience gained, difficulties overcome, sanctuary and guidance for pathways yet to be traveled.

Whether commemorating an achievement, hoping to guide someone in the right direction or protecting and sanctifying the remains of what has passed, cairns have held deep significance for millennia.

Melanie Leppla has been working professionally with glass since 1986. Whether she is working in the studio, gardening, walking by the river, or traveling, she finds inspiration in her observations of the intricacies of nature and her surroundings. Her work is in the collections of major museums as well as in many private collections.
