About Dishes to Ashes: 
On May 9, 2001 artist Rahna Moreau’s sister died by suicide. Soon to turn fifty, her sister wrote of pain and putting an end to her suffering. She also expressed regret.
 
In an earlier installation and performance, Rahna broke most of the family china she inherited. You can view that work at: www.disheswillbebroken.com
 
This second installation uses fragments of that china to represent the broken lives and the aftermath of suicide.
 
Dishes to Ashes is a representation of Rahna’s never-ending grief and her compassion for those who have died by suicide as well as those touched by suicide.
 
This installation is part of an ongoing project.
