Another view "Through the Looking Glass" -

"Through the Looking Glass, Installation View II"
stacked found glass sculpture by Mick Mather
As promised, another view of the stacked found glass tree along with the exhibition statement:

"This tree is constructed of stacked sheets of found glass installed against a mirror so the whole is only visible as a reflection of itself. The round, hollow feature midway between the bottom and top is the conceptual ornament composed of empty space. Look into the ornament and see your own reflection. The viewer is now the ornament."

Even the first picture (installation day) made me think about a spruce. I like it very much, even the one "without" the hole.

Thank you very much, Hélène, and with all of the tree trimming recently at your place, one would think you'd have a tree by now! :D
By the way, I only created one tree - two different views of it are shown - since I ran out of time and material for a second one.

harlequinpan:
I appreciate you saying so Harle. This project turned into quite an adventure and within seven days it will either be sold or moved to another location.

You've pulled this off beautifully Mick. It's an amazing piece and I think that the 'viewer as the ornament' is genius.
How has this been recieved by the audience?

With more than one blush I say thanks and thanks again, Lisa. The show comes down today and, having been sick, I'm not sure whether or not the piece sold. Even if not, it was a big hit with the audience and especially with many of the Everson Unwrapped Committee members. I couldn't be more pleased. :)
