Fountain mosaic: ceramic and glass mosaic tiles, Ø 900 cm
Heaven's Waters (Detail)
Heaven's Waters - 2000Horst Gläsker
"The cool blue of the glass and ceramic tiles dominates. It is the colour of the element without which – as Goethe wrote – there is no healing.
Let into the richly nuanced mosaic bottom of the pool is a light-coloured ornament from the family of the Dancing Brushes. All linearity seems to open itself up, to flow apart.
Sweeping, abstract characters perform an underwater ballet that decoratively underscores the movement of the waves..."
