Norma freezes the transitory moments and the subtle variations in position and movement that the figure in dance finds in rehearsal and performance. She portrays the motion of the figure and captures stress, strain, and relaxation. Her work often shows the figure at the point of no return, that moment when the viewer believes they may fall.
Ms Glasser uses the lost wax process for her bronze sculptures. She is involved in every step of the process starting with creating the sketch, and sculpting the clay. She creates the molds, work the wax positive, burnishes the patina, and designs the base upon which the sculpture resides.
With the exception of commissions, each mold is used to to provide an edition of 7 pieces after which the mold is broken and discarded.
