The Glass Hammer by Alice Jung Explores Stereotypes and Identities

The Glass Hammer may look like it was sculpted from an icicle, but as its name gives away, it is made out of a frosted glass material. A unique tool to say the least, the Glass Hammer may not be a very functional or practical item to have on hand, but it is very pretty. It also forces people to reevaluate the purpose of an actual hammer.

Created by Korean American artist Alice Jung, the Glass Hammer symbolizes her own exploration of her dual cultural background. Constantly rebelling against other people's perceptions, including her own, Jung likes to break down boundaries and bring to light stereotypes that often go unnoticed on a daily basis.
