The solstice!

It seems to be the right time to start playing with light in my sculptures.

Here is the first piece I made with light in mind.  As I am finding out it is great to illuminate it from above or below, but not from behind it as I originally had thought.  The light source will be seen and distract from the form.

This piece is made to hang on the wall and I loved playing with 2 mirror images as I have done hundreds of times with the symmetric shapes of earrings.
