About the Project
This piece was designed to show a scene, a scene that was meaningful to the couple. Carlyn designed the “Parting of the Red Sea” with the Yochananovs and designer Christian Ryan. Much more interesting than a 2-d painting, the sculptural triptych depicts the scene while including the colors of their living room, creating an aurora to the room with light, and reflecting the light on the textural glass. The detail in this piece is exquisite. The sea shows glittery reflections from the glass which lie flat and creates the depth in the scene. A lot of pieces are coated with gold leaf and with light, reflect the flakes of gold leaf all along the cresting waves. The beauty comes with the first sight of the glass and the presence elegance of the piece is experienced in the details.
