Catalogue Note

Love Sphere’s numerous irregular pentagonal panes of silvered hand-blown glass, attached to a steel framework, form the outer shell of a dynamic polyhedron. Glimpses of the polyhedron’s vivid red interior can be seen through intermittent panes of clear glass, as well as through the narrow gaps between the mirrored panes and the steel frame; the light that emerges casts the pattern formed by the work’s geometry onto the surroundings.
