​Lotic refers to moving water. Lotic Meander depicts the patterns of water as it moves through a streambed. The resulting meandering form is based on several local streams. The scroll-like patterns clarify the hydrological movement of water as it swirls in vortices around the stream’s bends. Glass stones are set into the shoals of deposition where gravel and stones would collect on the inside of the curve due to the slower current. Large stone domes, like boulders along the stream reflect the sky and surrounding museum.
