"Solar Roots" features an ornate circular artwork that has a rich texture. The piece is dominated by vibrant blues, with splashes of gold and green. The individual fragments within the circle are iridescent dichroic glass, giving the artwork a shimmering effect and catching and reflecting light differently from various angles. The circular form is consistent and even, showcasing precision in its creation. The background upon which the artwork is mounted has a textured, gray surface, which contrasts with the smooth, glossy appearance of the fused glass. This juxtaposition emphasizes the bright colors and complex details within the design. The overall impression is one of meticulous craftsmanship and visual allure.
