Ocean Lights (Jellyfish)

When I saw these, with their crappy wooden frames with a felt back ground and Home Depot mounting hardware, I wrote them off as clumsy and poorly executed. This knee jerk initial reaction was abandoned when I looked past the obvious shortcomings and quickly realized how stunning and marvelous the pieces really are. Part nature inspired sculpture and part hanging lamp (LED’s are strategically hidden buried in the piece), these glass jellyfish hang in an eerie glow and the detailing in the various parts make them feel alive and breathing and made me feel the deep inspiration that the natural world is for design and art.
