William Leslie Organic Light Sculpture

About

An original William Leslie 'light sculpture' in onion-like bulbous shape made from thin strips of wood bent into a frame then covered with paper soaked in polyvinyl resin and internally by incandescent light bulbs. Following the light around it appears slightly pink or beige. This is a statement piece. In 1976, William Leslie's career as a designer began when he apprenticed to Stephen White, an architect who had developed a unique form of ‘light sculpture’. Most of William’s designs are inspired by natural forms. Leslie’s Light sculptures have displayed across the country in print, commercial, film, and more. His work has been used on the stage of the American Music Awards and in the film Star Trek: Generations as well as on HGTV. Presently, he teaches philosophy at Palomar College in the San Diego area and maintains a small studio in his home designing and producing “Light sculptures” with his wife Alessandra for homes, restaurants, hospitals, businesses and religious institutions throughout the country.
