The rock series installations are inspired by the riverbeds along the Russian River, located in Northern California. Unique, fluid shapes that organic forms take on, and the textured surface that glass can have invites the viewer to come closer. Each form is different in shape and size, and with color palettes that creates different moods. Using color, Jeffries creates pathways to lead the viewers’ eye, and the empty space becomes the simple beauty in the overall composition.
