Glass Marbles in Rainbow Colors

G.A._Rushing's picture

A display case made of metal and tinted glass, with glass marbles on a wood bottom. First I made the case and wondered what to put inside. Then I went outside and saw a rainbow left from a rain shower earlier that day. The colors from the outside to the inside ran from red, to orange, to yellow, to green, to blue, and finally to purple. I decided then that nature had inspired me again, so I went back inside and created the colored glass marbles.

Yes, I know the metal looks dark, but I used the photographic three-point lighting technique which calls for a darker look in the lower right corner of the object. Tweaking the exposure to lighten the metal washed out the blue table and the reflections of the glass marbles against the tinted glass panels so I left it as dark as it is to insure maximum reflectivity.
