Ray King is an accomplished artist who uses the natural phenomena of light as it interacts with glass and optics as an art medium. By creating dynamic interactions with the sun and refracting light into colors – rainbow-like emanations that shift and change as the viewer moves or as the light source changes – King creates an environment that appeals to viewers' sense of wonderment and delight.
