I recently installed Flocon de Neige at the library, please go see it, it will be up through the beginning of feburary. Flocon de Neige means snowflake in french. Statement and gallery below

flakes with shadows on the wall

 

Flocon de Neige is an installation currently on display at the Kansas City Art Institute’s Jannes Library. The piece consists of five hundred individual snowflakes that are cut from thin porcelain patterned slabs. The installation is suspended in the window, so the viewer may observe the effect the snowflakes have on their environment. Light is a significant component to this piece. As the sun shines through the windows and the day progresses from light to dark, the elements of Flocon de Neige reveal their translucency and cast shadows.
