Dream Ladder

Dream Ladder is inspired by  Genesis 28:10–19, referencing Jacob’s dream in which he sees a ladder or staircase between the earth and heaven with angels ascending and descending it. The arching steel hoops gradually rise from the base to stretch skyward. Transparent colored beads and glossy hardware magnify the play of light and suggest an ethereal atmosphere.
