Guests enter Opal Sands Resort and rise to the surface bathed in the many colors of the beautiful waves of Clearwater Beach. It was artist Christopher Still’s vision to create a metal sculpture with glass that shifted in color as a wave passing over the shallows of a sandbar or deepen with changing depth. Sculptor Mark Aeling skillfully translates the patterns of a shore bound wave into a life size three-dimensional master work of art as Still paints colors with personally selected panes of glass. The form moves in a chain of colored rings each tirelessly crafted by the sculptor and his team to symbolize the experience of rising beneath the changing colors of our Gulf waves. Still credits art agent Alison West Brown for recommending master sculptor Mark Aeling of MGA Sculpture Studio for this successful collaboration. Together Still and Aeling combine the best of two and three-dimensional art.Type your paragraph here.
