Noted artist Christopher Ries speaks about his glass sculpture, including the extraordinary Sunflower, a monumental work currently on view in Gallery 2. Ries grew up on a farm near Columbus and studied ceramics at Ohio State. He composes light through the medium of glass by sculpting monolithic forms from giant blocks of optic crystal. His elegant polished forms reflect internally, then transmit evocative abstract compositions, which appear as pure apparitions of light.
