Celebration

Entitled "Celebration", this piece is the work of American born artist Christopher Ries.In Celebration, Ries uses the finest, colorless optical glass cut and polished in simple shapes.
As one walks around the work and views it at various angles, the refraction of light within appears to alter and change the designs which Ries has applied to the exterior.
Photos were taken at The Dayton Museum of Art.
Weekend Reflections is hosted by James at Newtown Area Photo.

That's a work of art I could live with! Of course, in my house it would just reflect the mess. LOL
Seriously, it is wonderful, and the reflections just don't stop, do they?
