Geometric Dichroic Glass Installations by Chris Wood


glass-8

Artist Chris Wood works with colored glass to create colorful, prism-like mazes and mandalas of light installed vertically on walls. Her most common material is dichroic (meaning ‘two color’) glass, a material invented by NASA in the 1950s that has a special optical coating meant to reflect certain wave lengths of light while letting others through. At some angles the glass appears completely reflective, somewhat like a mirror of gold.

Playful “Memory” Balloon Lights


06 05

Balloons are universally happy, though they don’t last forever. With John Moncrieff’s “Memory” design, these childhood inspired light fixtures are available to attach to your wall as a sconce or to the ceiling as a pendant to cherish daily. A great addition to a kids room, pop art inspired space or your favorite room in the house. “Memory” comes in all kinds of colored glass (opal, turquoise, pink, green and orange are just a few of the hues) and a couple of different sizes for some variance and hierarchy if you choose to group them.04 03 02 01
