Mass groupings of colored transparent spheres, held in lacy metallic settings below slender silver rods, cascade down from the ceiling. Each group hangs delicately from the group above, while the whole assembly slowly rotates and twists in response to air currents. Formally evoking the distinctive seed configuration of Broomfield, CO’s namesake broomcorn plant, the colors of the glass were chosen based on the color of local wildflowers.
