Lovers Sweet Embrace While Dream Chariot Waits1997
Thompson paints narrative scenes on the interior of blown glass vessels, dubbing them “self-contained environments where a story can be told from beginning to end.” She combines stylized themes and people from her personal life with a sense of the mythological derived from Persian and Indian art and the Hindu religion. "Lovers Sweet Embrace while Dream Chariot Waits" is a picture-poem portraying Thompson and her husband cuddling on their bed with their dog curled up on the floor beside them. Above them, two smiling cherubs drop flowers onto their richly decorated canopy bed. On the opposite side, a goddess spills waves of stars and dream dust into a chariot pulled by two winged horses.
