Blue Refraction

2013 

 

“Blue Refraction” – Iridescent glass, stained glass, mirror, millefiori, 15” x 15”

 

Designed and created by Rochelle Rose-Schueler of Wild Rose Artworks

 

Refraction is the bending of a wave when it enters a medium where its speed is different.  The refraction of light is the most commonly observed phenomenon, but any type of wave can refract when it interacts with a medium.

 

The design of this mosaic was informed by light refraction and how it changes the view of the object as it is seen through different mediums.  This design shows an object transforming through two different mediums.  I also added iridescent glass to help give the feeling of the light changing.  I used classical andamento to give this abstract geometric mosaic a contemporary feeling.
