Tom Fruin, whose work is featured in the gallery right now as part of our Home Sweet Home show, uses light and colored glass to create illumination within the spaces they’re in. They almost look like lighting fixtures, functional but still strong pieces of sculptural artwork. Today in the studio, we’ll be using wire and colored mylar to create lampshades that can cast a rainbow of color inside your space!
