Spotlight: CFL Reactive Glass

Have you ever noticed how some glass changes colors depending on the lighting? Incorporating this unique optical property has gained serious popularity recently and is known as CFL reactive glass. What makes this type of glass special is its color shifting response to the wavelength of compound fluorescent light.

The “Lot Lizard” piece below features two CFL colors, Serum and Terps. Serum shifts from yellow to pink while Terps transforms from yellow to orange. Calm and Elbo were able to take advantage of CFL reactive glass to give this piece of art two very different looks, depending on the type of lighting.
