Web Description: 
Transparency, illusion, color, and the light that enables them are ideas that Michael Taylor has chosen to spend a career in exploring. While cut, optical glass can come across as a cold, unforgiving material, Taylor gives it warmth with color, which radiates and reflects from the central core of each of his sculptures. His works are not derived from a mathematical base or theoretical bent, but are solidly based in the natural world.
