‘Crystalis’ is a play on the word chrysalis. The glass beads of the two sculptures resemble “Mod” cocoons. This installation having been created for the Mariposa (Butterfly) Restaurant, the name is natural.
Made of contemporary hand-blown glass by Corey Silverman & Horace Marlowe, supported by stainless steel cable, bars and fittings, lucite and vinyl spacers, and various chrome parts. No two pieces of glass are alike.
