Each of these unique glow-in-the-dark sculptures has been cast by Walla Walla Foundry, Inc. working under the artist's direction.
Benglis, who created her first phosphorescent piece in 1971, has long been intrigued by natural phosphorescence, whether found in bioluminescent waters and phosphorescent caves or in the glow of fireflies. She also cites the glow-in-the-dark displays at funhouses that she visited as a child as early influences.
