With its intelligent play on words, the 'More Like a Window than Ajar' project by artist Erin Thurlow explores the idea of throwing a brick through a window -- with the brick being the window.

This complex thought is simply and brilliantly executed with the mirrored glass bricks that have each been cracked to demonstrate Thurlow’s metaphysical concept. Each brick is cracked by hand, making each one a little different and unique, so you can have only one as a beautiful statement piece on your bookshelf, or you can collect a few and stack them up as a wall or even create a pile of bricks.

The balance of delicate shattered glass and a hard cracked brick plays out beautifully in the More Like a Window than Ajar project by Erin Thurlow.
