||Blue Sky Rainbow|
Item No. 2053
We recently created a new series of Splash designs which incorporate both light transmission and refraction in the sculptures.
This technique produces designs with a nearly unlimited variety of images, viewing angles and depth.
These blown sculptures are built in alternating layers of clear glass, opaque white and a variety of transparent colors.
The designs transmit light through the vase wall, which then refracts through the multiple layers of clear and colored glass.
By self illuminating in this fashion, the sculptures produce a glow using only ambient light.
Ropes of clear glass are then trailed onto the exterior of the vase wall to produce a magnified view of the lines of color by utilizing the magic of light refraction.
Rainbows occur when light refracts while entering a water droplet, reflects inside off the back, then refracts again when it exits.
