Entry description

Rhythm of the Lights is a bowl inspired by Coby’s enjoyment of watching traffic lights from a distance and observing the rhythmic, harmonious sequencing of the lights to control the flow of traffic. He likens the process to the beating of a human heart and the movement of blood. Coby has used a variety of cast and sheet pewter to create his wire-framed bowl, cast pewter rods form the main shape with decorative traffic lights mounted to the top of some uprights.
