Crystal Clusters (Small)
13 x 12.5 x 9.5 cm
Optical glass prisms in velvet lined mahogany box, white base
One of a series of 9 Crystal Clusters, works using periscope prisms made for 2nd WW Centurion tanks.
The works are ritualistic meditations on form and space, and, most importantly on fitting. They were interactive works, but being glass, they had to be handled with care and attention.
The prisms can be arranged on the base as wished, the piece being constantly made and remade by its owner. Crystal Clusters are concerned with architectural forms and the way in which these forms work with light.
