Lonnie Hanzon and Hanzon Studios worked very closely with Ignaz Gorischek and the Neiman Marcus design team to create this architectural artwork.
It is made of contemporary hand blow glass by Corey Silverman & Horace Marlowe, which is supported by stainless steel cable, bars and fittings, lucite and vinyl spacers, and various chrome parts.
