I ran across this sculpture installation that really caught my eye. A really simple fireplace wall composition with one spectacular piece of art. The glass wheat sculpture is designed by Canlis Glass out of Seattle, Washington. Check it out.
I would imagine that this unique glass sculpture is cost prohibitive. But the idea of the fireplace wall can be borrowed. Keep the composition very simple. No need for a fancy fireplace surround with expensive stone and and an ornate mantel. Instead just place one interesting piece of art above. Beautiful idea.

|Lighting is important here as it really emphasizes the overall texture of the glass.|
|The stems of glass are set into the base of the sculpture; which in this case also serves as the fireplace mantel.|
|I don't want to know how much this costs.|
