Alexander Bertoni and the Slideshow of the Crystal Buddhas

If it wasn’t clear I’ve become addicted to interestingly lit glass work, then this will probably cement it. Featured at the Architectural Digest Home Design Show, this artist’s use of Eastern imagery seemed a little exploitative and reductive when viewed alongside all of the other “Far East” kitsch that they had on offer, but I felt that the way they set up these glass busts was gorgeous.

Perfectly aged, dirtied where it improved the aesthetic, and clear enough to be enhanced by well-placed spotlights, I could not help but stop to take a few pics.
