Glassballs & Steel Installation

I had a large piece of marine grade stainless steel mirror [ 3400cm wide x 1600cm high] fitted into a curved alcove that had been cut into a wall 1100cm up from the floor. [The fitting of and curving of was done by a fabricator and a shop fitter].

In front of this I floated 30 antique hand blown glass balls of sizes varying from 50cm in diameter down to 4cm in diameter. I designed a steel base that supported 30 steel rods of varying heights to support all the balls and the end result was hundreds of balls and all the inherent reflections warping back into infinity.
