Laura is connected with the glass. She has a sort of translucent beauty to her that is also very breakable. Yes, she is just as fragile as her little glass crystals. Laura is also emotionally fragile too. She runs away at the slightest of conflict. In many ways Laura is a caricature like her figurines. Her crippled leg is also a symbol of her fragility as well as the imperfectness of her glass sculptures and herself.

Please ask other questions each separately.
