Free essence 32

I saw this sculpture by Ikuta Niyoko in Bristol Museum. I like the way it refracts light and references emptiness but is in fact solid. It is part of a series in which the artist cuts thin sheets of glass then attaches them to each other with an adhesive that becomes transparent as it hardens. It also reminded me of the work of Emma Rawson who captures images of lace into layers of glass although her work speaks more of layered landscapes than the wave shape evoked here.
