Natalie Bork’s hollow, cylindrical forms hover above the ground at various levels. Each form hangs from steel cables which enables them to oscillate with the slightest breeze. Viewers can walk in between the suspended cylinders watching as the forms slowly begin to spin. The child within may inspire the viewer to lay on the ground and see the works from a different prospective and relax as he or she watches them spin from the airflow. The cylinders react to the energy we give off when walking, creating a ripple effect.Be sure to check out in Ross II: YooHoo by Natalie Bork

YooHoo is a series of fused glass flowers.  These playful glass flowers radiate color, with each form slightly different than the next.  They can be hung anywhere to add a ray of sunshine.  The interchangeable wall hanging brackets allow for an assortment of installation options.

During their week-long stay, students take part in an intensive exploration of the creative process of finding one’s own voice in the visual arts. The artwork on view is the production of each student’s own reflection of their experience. Please join us in celebrating and admiring their creations.
