Morris’ glass labyrinth [5] is made from inch-thick glass panes, which are topped with bronze [6] rails and built into a base of concrete paving stones. Measuring 7 feet high, this dynamic see-through structure is shaped like a triangle instead of the more familiar circular and rectangular shapes.

Unlike traditional labyrinths [8], this transparent piece allows visitors to see each other and the landscape, while wandering around. The aim is to reach the center and then find a way out of the triangular form. Elegant, modern and unique, this stunning glazed piece was designed for people to experience, explore and enjoy.
