Qwalala is the second outdoor installation (following Hiroshi Sugimoto’s Glass Tea House Mondrian) commissioned by LE STANZE DEL VETRO. The work by American artist Pae White consists of a curving wall made of a series of solid glass-bricks, each hand-cast in the Veneto region. The title of the piece, Qwalala, is a Native American Pomo word and references the meandering flow of the Gualala river in Northern California, which the work echoes in both its structure and layout.
