Glass Prism Table Reflects Dazzling Rainbows

Flickers of light dance across the floor, walls, and ceiling of any room that holds this Sparkle Palace Cocktail Table by John Foster. The unique table design consists of transparent glass, cut into geometric prisms, and arranged into two tiers. Layered in between the prisms are one large and one small glass tabletop surface. As light passes through the colorful glass, scatters of triangular light cover the walls in a beautiful and unpredictable display.

Foster says, “I want my objects to influence our experience. I embrace chance, and allow the experiential aspect of my work to inform the composition.” The artist describes the Sparkle Palace Cocktail Table as an “experiential sculpture.” It is a handmade, one-of-a-kind piece that can be purchased for about $6,900, and the unique design will add a bit of flair to any living space!
