"The Glass Glass Molecule"

What does glass look like on a Molecular level? This sculpture is a scientifically accurate model of a glass molecule; made out of glass. It was cast in glass from original 3D printed models, using the “lost plastic” technique (similar to “lost wax”). The silicon atoms (green) and oxygen atoms (clear) are bonded together (97 total) following known scientific principles to show the amorphous (non-crystalline) nature of glass . As “Science Art”, this sculpture is intended to help the viewer visualize and understand molecular structures, through the beauty of glass.
