Glass Abstract 262
Photograph - Photograph
The glass cubes in this image are composed of dichroic glass which is manufactured by stacking layers of glass and thin layers of oxides or metals. This gives the glass a shifting array of colors depending on the angle of view, or, in the case of photography, depending on the angle of the camera. Also entering into the composition are the distorted reflections of shapes and colors in the environment.
Colored glass has been popular for centuries for use in windows and household items such as drinking glasses. The earliest forms of colored glass were caused by impurities in the sand used to produce the glass. Later, colors were introduced deliberately into glass by addition of minerals or metals during the production process. Also entering into the composition are the reflections of shapes and colors in the environment.
Artist's recommendation: Get this as a METAL PRINT for maximum effectiveness.
