Web Description: 
The use of optical-quality cast glass as a material for sculpture was highly developed in Czechoslovakia in the 1980s. Rosol is one of the younger generation of Czech artists who have chosen to continue exploring this material, focusing on its unique qualities of light, transparency, and illusion. This is the first work by Rosol to enter the Museum’s collection.

Primary Description: 
Colorless glass; cut and polished optical glass, laminated with bright yellow color epoxy. Circular shape sculpture with a split down the center that off-sets the circle so the two halves at the top do not meet squarely. One of the edges exposed by the center cut is bright yellow; the resulting reflections cause the entire sculpture to glow bright yellow.
