Aquarium Life
A river singing in your home. Lightly tending to a blossoming succulent. This series depicts life energy by turning the personal journey into an interactive journey of the senses. Each Living Lightbox directs its own outward energy. One may include handblown glass vessels made to hold living succulents along with watering vessels inspired by ancient Israeli glass. Another may incorporate a fountain of flowing water dancing down handblown glass vessels.

Gabriel controls the light by diffusing layers of plastics, stained glass, and natural rocks or sand. Through his breathe he blows the glass which then is used in the aquariums to pull the light from the bottom of the solid wood dovetail joined box. There is no limit to the potential of this project. Let us be inspired by your dreams and bring the rhythm of life into your home.
