Sunflower by Christopher Ries

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.
