The teacup that my mother used to take medicine towards the end of her life while suffering from cancer. The self-corroding elements of the combined materials, pewter and lead, mirroring the effects of cancer as a destructive disease. The title refers to chance and a gamble in life. As you ascend the stack, the forms become less defined; the last element is the cup’s lip only.

Image of a series od stacked cast metal tea cups. The cup form diminishes the futher up the stack you go. 50% lead and 50% is the alloy.
