Light Sculpture by Toby Raetze"I love to play with light.  I make a sculpture, shine a light through it and boom, it makes big, often unexpected patterns.  Creating sculptures that intercept and change the direction of light as light flies through space is new and fun.   Even though I have been doing this since 1968, I never know exactly what is going to happen.


Can I make the sculpture and the light patterns work together?  Can I make it say what I want?  I want my art to keep me looking and help push my freedom and enthusiasm for life."  


Toby Raetze "plays with light" by making what he calls light-cymbals and other colorful and colorless sculptural creations.   Some of Raetze works are clear hanging circles others colorful boxes.  When direct light meets his work it seems to transform into something grand and wonderful like a blooming flower.
