She's semi-irreverent, she's a rebel and a star. She stands for equality and she's full of self-confidence. Her message is to spread love to all regardless of financial background, sexual and gender identity, color, body shape or size, etc. She cherishes those who are living and also those in the spirit world.
Sugar is the first full-sized Iconostar that Elizabeth made, and she's built with the artist's "Circle of Life" motif. The "Circle of Life" series started back in 2003 when the artist's daughter was born and her mother was simultaneously dying of breast cancer. The circles began as a series of paintings but have now found their way into many of the artist's sculptures as well.
She was named "Sugar" for a variety of reasons. First, is her obvious white glistening glass tiles. However, the word "sugar" itself has many meanings: it is something sweet, it can be used as a term of endearment or as an epithet, and it is also something that we crave.
