MATERIALS: dichroic glass, sunlight or electrical illumination
Dichroic glass is a seemingly magical material. The glass contains multiple micro layers of metals which split the light and transmit differing and complementary colors of the light spectrum.
These colors and patterns change with the time of day and the seasons.
The material reflects our fascination with differing properties and effects of waves and wavelengths. We have used dichroic glass in architecture, furniture, lighting fixtures, and sculptures.

Paper sculptural studies are used to understand how flow can interact with gravity to produce unique forms.
