We're currently working on a project with artists from all over the world who work in metal, glass and ceramics. So we were mightily delighted that Adele brought this artist to our attention. Inspired by nature and technical innovation, Tonkin Liu's art, architecture and landscape pieces will force your jaw to the floor. Check out this video: The Baku Sfera. It's a twenty-five meter diameter glass astronomical device that tells the time with light. The structure is constructedof layers of stacked glass bonded together with adhesive film. Inside, a beam of light projects through the red-rimmed oculus to mark the passage of time, day-to-day and season-by-season.
