Glass Waterfall and River Sculptures Give Shattering Illusion

Pennsylvania-based artist Steve Tobin is known for pushing the limits of every material he has ever touched. Though he's usually known for his large scale bronze and steel sculptures, Tobin is equally adept at creating frozen waterfalls and rivers with rip roaring ends. His series Waterglass is made up of stunning sculptures composed of 2 to 4 million discarded capillary tubes. With some rivers measuring up to 100 feet long, they're majestic displays of art that all mimic nature.

From now till October 26, you can see some of his works at the Michener Art Museum in Pennsylvania. In his usual style, he'll feature several large scale sculptures in an outdoor setting, outside the museum walls, and the 15′ high Steelroots sculpture within it.
