Amri Studio, formerly Wallach Glass Studio, has devoted itself to creating unique crystal and glass donor recognition systems, tributes, art glass, and signage for 35 years. They also work in stained glass, stone, metal, and other high-quality materials. They are located in Santa Rosa, California, just over an hour north of San Francisco.
Both palette and canvas, glass is infinitely mutable and eloquently transmissive. The seduction is powerful.
It is impossible to separate glass from light. It simply does not exist without light behind, below, before, above, or through it. It is that intrinsic relationship that draws designers and artists to choose glass as their medium. And as technology continually refines manufacturing techniques and lighting options, the possibilities inherent in glass are virtually limitless.
This installation is half-inch thick, highly polished, etched and carved domestic crystal. The designer was inspired by the aesthetically intriguing horizontal graph and chart presentations that the Genome Project researchers have developed to map the human genome.
