These two companion pieces evoke the spirit of the old growth forest – peaceful, harmonious, and eternal.
62 year old reclaimed Western Red Cedar and Photolucents® Glass.
Immersive Experience |
Luxurious backlighting is achieved by allowing the rich red and yellow tones of the natural wood to reflect through the Photolucents™ glass. The effect is an unfiltered immersion into our natural world, and we may – as Paul Laurence Dunbar wrote a century ago –“walk with Nature heart to heart”.
Eternal Spirit is an iteration of a vision born a number of years ago. The purdurance of a forest is an evolution through time and similarly with my vision – or question – could I present my photography in a transparent (translucent) way. The process evolved from early presentations on printed acrylic – too soft, too easily scratched – through to an early flat glass to a now perfected laminated safety glass. My Photolucents art pieces are today presented in both flat and curved editions.
The images below are stages in the creation of Eternal Spirit. To bring the artwork to life required a fabrication team which shared our dedication to perfection. We found such a dream team – a team of brilliance, imagination, and ingenuity and they are in our back yard. To learn more about the craftsmanship of these custom creations, visit the fabrication studio at UFOs Made Here.

I want to give people the opportunity to integrate the outside world into their personal environments, where they can thrive alongside nature.
