Kaiser Permanente Roseville Medical Offices – Riverside, Roseville CA. It begins with clear glass droplets depicting the pure crystal waters at its source. Undulating gently, multicolored petals reflect Roseville's plethora of native leaves and flowers. Streaming downward in dance, clear droplets become filled with tiny bubbles as they plunge five stories to the bottom. To represent the evolution and dynamics of water drops that form a waterfall, Tanaka used the hot glass technique to hand-sculpt all the clear and bubble-filled droplets.
