Kentucky Museum of Art + Craft

Overview

The glass wall separating the sales gallery and the corridor leading to the exhibition galleries is composed of laminated beveled glass and blown glass stands laminated to the base sheets. The theme is of blowing grass as a subtle association of Kentucky bluegrass. The beveled glass elevates the effect of the artificial light and creates interesting visual effects of the work on display in the gallery. The three-dimensional glass strands create a sense of flowing movement, which supports the role of the corridor as a transition space.
