This magnificent and very large (weighs in at 1100 pounds) piece of art is a gilded optic lead crystal sculpture from one block of carved and ground glass with solid gold leaf. It took the artist one year to make. The artist grew up on a central Ohio farm and has a studio in Columbus, Ohio.
How I would love to have a tiny version of this or at least visit his studio. For more information about Christopher Ries visit his website here.
This should accompany “spectacular” in any and every dictionary. Nicely captured, Teri.
Thanks! You should’ve seen me doing contortions to get these shots without crossing the boundary. It is a stunning sculpture.
A magnificent centerpiece in any foyer of an office building. Thanks for the great share 🙂
Thanks. I still would love to have a teeny tiny one.
That is some sunflower!! XOXO – Bacon
That was a piece of art I could’ve started at for some time.
What an incredible work of art! I wouldn’t mind a smaller version of this too!
That is absolutely amazing! Thanks for sharing. Cheers!
I wish I could have a little bitty one. No room for a big one 😉
