"It was such a serendipitous moment when I saw Valentine’s Diamond Column. I had been wavering on the final triangular shape of my Prism Candlesticks — equilateral? isosceles? scalene? — but when I saw those columns, I knew it would be an obtuse isosceles and I would do them in gray, blue, and peach. I realized I wanted to emphasize not only all the refraction that occurs in the kind of prism that I had previously envisioned, but also how the color transmits as the form goes from thick to thin."
