Inspired by the Grand Prismatic Spring in Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming, these art glass pieces combine a mix of opaque french vanilla and transparent turquoise art glass. During firing, a chemical reaction is caused where the sulfur-bearing french vanilla comes in contact with the copper-bearing transparent turquoise glass. The reaction results in a third color which varies, being dependent on temperature and volume of the base glasses. Each piece is unique, one of a kind. 

- All art work is handmade by Robert Wiener in the DC Art Glass Studio. Kilnforming is a method of shaping glass in a kiln using heat and gravity. Techniques used by the artist include fusing, slumping, casting, printmaking and coldworking. It is common of kilnformed glass to have slight color shifts and small "champagne" bubbles.
