Schaechter’s brightly colored panels feature dark and mysterious narratives that nevertheless feel familiar. Like something from Grimm’s fairy tales, the young girl wearing a wolf’s fur sleeps in the snowy woods, oblivious to the crows that circle her from above. Like a revised Little Red Riding Hood, this girl who wears the skin of a fearsome predator is a survivor.

Feral Child is notable for the artist’s improvisation with the layers of glass, seen here in the horizontal swath of birds. With a general sense of what she wanted the area to look like, but lacking a cartoon outlining a specific image, Schaechter engraved each piece section-by-section with three layers of pink, blue, and red glass.
