"Lumen" by Seattle based artist Ann Gardner is a large, sun-like circular coil that is 16 feet in diameter and composed of a series of spiraling loops. The surface is made from thousands of small, hand-cut pieces of glass, each one backed with metal leaf to reflect the light. The glass is laid on the composite/fiberglass coil and then grouted.
