||Glacier Ice Flow|
Item No. 1872
Transparent arctic blue is combined and fused into a gather of clear.
An optic press is used to concentrate the color creating bands of varying transparency.
The effect reproduces the look of ice melt flowing over transparent blue glacial ice.
The transparent waves created within the glass wall are accentuated by the undulating shape which has all the look and feel of the natural phenomenon.
On Earth, 99% of glacial ice is contained within the vast ice sheets of the polar regions, but glaciers are also found in the mountain ranges of every continent except Australia.
Glacial ice is the largest reservoir of freshwater on Earth.
Many glaciers store water during one season and release it later as melt water. This water source is especially important to plants and animals when other sources become scarce.
