This is the first piece I created in this series. In my bending practice, I was searching for a shape and hadn’t found anything inspiring. So I started looking through some sketches I had done and discovered the coil which I really liked. It took a lot of practice to develop the ability to bend the coil in different sized tubes in both soda and lead glass. Later, I discovered the coil design is common in mandalas. I picked the colors and designed the animation to be meditative. Six of the tubes slowly fade up and down in a random pattern. The center coil beads. The beading is created by a transformer that pulses. The piece is 27 x 27 x 12.
