Glass Ceiling - Literally

Persian Ceiling and Wall Reflections

Back to the glass exhibit for a post today: one of the most impressive things we saw was an installation comprising a back-lit glass ceiling. This was a recreation of something he built for the bottom of his own swimming pool and comprises an amazing diversity of glass-modelled marine life, from mermaids to fish to seashells, lit to gives the impression of light being filtered throiugh water.

It's one of those exhibits you could easily spend an hour or more looking at, always finding something new and interesting to further catch your attention. Each piece is so well crafted, each piece so carefully placed.

The above shot doesn't really do it justice but at least it gives some impression of the scope, color and sheer joy of this unique piece of art.
