Blown glass sculpture
The dynamically-lit sculpture titled Cassia draws its inspiration both from the universe and its star-studded sky, as well as the organic shapes of flowers in a meadow, gently moving in a breeze.
The sculpture consists of a group of smaller pendants, approximately 15 cm in diameter, each made of hand-blown glass. Every individual pendant represents a flower or a star, depending upon how we observe them. Each takes on a slightly different shape thanks to the use of optical form that allows glass to expand in its open areas. Variations are further enhanced by the monochromatic color scheme that differs in textures from clear glass, sanded and opaque glass, to pendants with hand-painted gold segments.
