As in traditional stained glass windows, this piece was designed to capture and distribute light shed from behind as it passes through the work. It is an example of working with "contrasts" in mosaic while emphasizing only the one main material — glass. The contrasts in this are achieved by focusing on color and opus (shape, size and arrangement of tesserae) and their relation to one another ,as well as by the changing qualities of the light as it passes through the different colors of glass and highlights the different opus.

Materials — scrap stained glass; imported Italian glass millefiore; natural stone; on a recycled pyrex microwave turntable with sanded grout. Colors are reds, ambers and greens with cream-colored natural stone and beige grout.
