What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?

On the Spectrum


Artist Chris Wood works with small slices of dichroic glass to create assembled works that range from a few inches to spanning entire building facades The reflective nature of the glass and her skilled placement of the slices at differing angles means the pieces are breathtakingly lovely from every angle. This is art I would dearly love to live with!

“I see this artwork as an interpretation of how radiance, much like ideas and discoveries, start from one central point and expand outwards… The whole design is built around Fibonacci’s golden ratio, which we see in natural forms from flowers to animal pattern. I was initially inspired by the nautilus shell. It is a wonderful representation of Fibonacci’s spiral. The form of the shell is structured to provide strength and protection, and the shell itself is iridescent. We find in this a representation of how radiance can be embodied within us, as projected to those around us.”

  2. I bet a lot of people would like this. It just isn’t my thing. It is nice to look at, but there are a lot of things that I enjoy looking at, just don’t want any of them in my house. Hal

  3. My house faces west, so I imagine my living room exploding with color as the sun goes down on this. Gorgeous!

  5. Lovely work, the colors seem magical to me. One of the reasons I leased the house I am currently living in is that the glass on the front door somehow creates a prism and sends a lovely rainbow of light to the bedroom door. (I am not sure I got the scientific theory words all correct…)
