Artist Uses Glass and Light to make Unbelievable Colored Glass Art
Cambridgeshire-based artist Chris Wood has an excellent eye for light and color, which she uses to create dazzling colored glass art and light installations using only delicate pieces of colored glass. She arranges the little shards and relies on shadows and light to bring the installation to life. Her works are mandala-like maze sculptures that mesmerize observers by controlling and trapping the fastest known thing in the universe – light.
Wood explains the passion behind her work on her website, “Glass is a material which allows me to exploit the aesthetic potential of light. Minimal structures, support simple arrangements of glass, which interact with light to create complex patterns of light and shade, which change depending upon the position of the viewer and the angle of the light source.”
