Architect Jim Harlan is also an artisan in residence, creating beautiful glass objet d’ art called RAYS.
Recalling the era of blown glass, each RAYS’ shape is unique and original. There are dozens of colors to choose from and Jim Harlan has his favorites- Orange, Khaki, Pale Blue, Red and Golden Yellow.
In true California style, the artistry of Rays is individualized fused glass, just like the Higgins rondelays of the 60’s, each one fluid with its own special shape and color translucence. The average size is 5” in height.
Each RAY, is strung with leather and mounted with a range of three to eight fused pieces of colored glass. The kiln soffits the edges of the Ray, creating a watery fluidity like a Manta Ray.
Distribution is limited and can be purchased through various retailers and showrooms in the U.S. by late 2016/early 2017. Introducing Rays through the Trina Turk Palm Springs showroom-Fall 2016.
