Lee’s After the big wind stops, I see gentle waves features 136 sculpted black and white kiln-formed glass panels that come together in layers to create a contemplative installation. With a pool of water underneath and light glowing from behind, the engraved images on the glass panels are reflected on the surface of the waving water which acts as an extension of the images and creates a meditative effect.
