Overview

126 golden blown glass orbs hanging in a wave pattern to mimic the waving wheat of the Kansas prairie. These 6″ orbs are all hung with stainless airline cable and slip proof ceiling mounts.

Goals

The main aim of this suspended glass piece was to fill the space above the dining area of the Senior Living Center it was located and reflect the region. The gold colored blown glass spheres catch sunlight through them and glow throughout the day.
