Barry Entner’s Philosophy
From my perspective, Sculptural Lighting originates as a sculptural vision rather than a commercial product design. Suspending sculpture in midair allows me to create an unlimited array of forms free from the limitations of gravity. The lighting aspect is designed specifically to enhance the form, color and the magical beauty of the glass itself. I intentionally employ certain techniques to highlight the unique properties of glass. Each of my works has a life of its own due to visual shifts in form and color, which give the pieces movement. These effects are dependent on the perspective of the viewer and the amount of ambient light.
