The beauty of hand blown glass rings in glowing soft blue, green, ivory, taupe and gray shine in the sunlight in this delightful outdoor sculpture by Susan Rankin. Three stems stacked organically and fixed to a steel plate sway gently in the breeze like flowers in a garden.They range in height from 5 to 7 feet. “In creating my ‘Garden Columns’ I have worked with scale to create a presence; they demand that observers engage with them in a more physical and direct way. Using numerous columns to define a space, I incorporate light through the multiple transparent or opaque glass elements. Drawing on natural and abstracted forms I have created a series of work, which is harmonious and compelling through the seasons.” -Rankin
