is downtown on Sutter Street, so last week we rewarded ourselves for getting through the bi-annual visit by walking down the street afterwards to check out what was new at the inestimable Big Pagoda
The show-stoppers were a series of hologram-like glass vases from Fringe Studio. Ethereal scenes are collaged on each surface. When the light passes through the scenes come to life, almost like the windows of Sainte-Chapelle.
Would the effect be as glowing and beautiful if the glass was filled with stems? Maybe the trick is to carefully trim off extra greenery so that some light can still pass through. Or better yet, let these pieces stand on their own near a window, and keep the flowers elsewhere.
$65 to $95 at Big Pagoda.
