Koop expresses the reality of the world through the things it casts away. In the artist’s own words, “My interest in used or abused materials is central to my work. It is an expression both of the life and beauty that exists in the ordinary, and of notions of reclamation and rebirth. The combination of carved texture, rich color, and sparkle of shattered glass acts as a visual reminder of the spirit and light that flows through each of us.”

From Broken to Beautiful is a massive collection of art that appears like enchanted artifacts, made through the combination of found objects and the artist’s hands. Many of the pieces are titled with lines from poetry and discuss the relation of her work to the natural world.
