Type of Glass



Imagine the tantalizing smell of the sea and being mesmerized by a unique piece of public art strategically placed at Manhattan Beach, CA, that positions you at the center of this bustling spot.

No matter what you are doing, you stop and succumb to its shimmering and dancing range of colors thrown when the brilliant California sunlight hit this special translucent dichroic glass.

A restoration piece where new life was given to this community project

“The City is happy to see the art piece restored to its novel beauty while celebrating the City’s past and inspiring future generations in the arts with such innovative techniques”

Glass In Action

Initially created in 2015, Goldray participated in the 2019 refresh of the sculpture that used Dichroic glass to bathe its viewers, in fiery light, while observing the setting sun, perfectly aligned through the keyhole of the piece.

Dichroic glass brings both beauty and functionality to the sculpture as it is preferred for architectural use in sunlight and comes with a ten-year warranty. These were also important considerations when the City Council considered the expenditure of public funds.
