The Facts: This piece is crafted entirely of optic crystal. Its unique shapes and edges make for a highly unusual entry to the collection.
Subjective Interpretation: The items on display in the upper most part of this design are unmistakably a series of gearwheels, or cogwheels. This has long been the traditional iconography used to represent engineering and invention. This obviously lends itself well to Henry's engineering expertise and past, but in a deeper sense it means much more. In 1973, when Henry Halladay joined the Washington Society of Professional Engineers, it was the beginning of a very important journey that started the gears of his career and technology passion turning... and never stopped.
Creative Note: There are many points of light on this piece. This comes from the pinched nature of the gear ends, plus the heavy reflections inherent to the visual display altogether.
