This is a series of soothing &  healing sculptures exploring gravity and the principles of zen.

Cast glass fountain wall on the end of an infinity pool consisting of a series of thick cast glass tiles supported in a stainless steel frame.

Lighting was strategically placed to utilize the waters surface as a flexible lens producing a stunning effect when illuminated.

Companion sculpture to “GB Fountain Wall”. Cast glass panels change color based on the sun’s angle. Sculpted “waves” in the glass act as lenses, refracting the surroundings. A subtle pattern in the metal adds to the illusion of depth and movement (like the optical effect found in curly maple).
