Between Sea and Sky

Between Sea and Sky.jpg

"Between Sea and Sky" is a dynamic colored glass sculpture celebrating the light and native plants of the Pacific Northwest.  Visitors will discover changing colors, shadows and patterns every time they visit the atrium.


Created by nationally renowned Artist Michele Gutlove, (view more of her work on her website:  this dynamic artwork will enhance the atrium, creating an intriguing gathering place and destination in the city.


The piece is a suspended sculpture composed of individual pieces of handblown glass dancing with light.  Colors transform magically as the glass, its shadows and reflections are observed in changing lights and angles.


In Nature, no leaves trees or birds are exactly the same.  Similarly, each piece of sculptural glass will be unique in color and form as each one will be crafted individually by hand.
