Vision by Luna Ryan

Luna Ryan is regarded as one of Canberra's outstanding worker in glass and crystal. Her works are often described as manifestations of a personal mythology. .Surrounding the central form are a number of figures that carry a dish. The figures suggest a ritualistic protective function while at the same time allowing the viewer passage into the centre by ways of pathways or openings  between each configuration. Vision was created in 1995 and is made of six kiln-cast glass and crystal components formed using a 'lost wax kiln -casting technique.
