Malcolm Tibbetts - Rainbow Flakes close up

About Rainbow Flakes

In the right circumstances, snowflakes can act as prisms and reflect colors.   To experience this requires early-morning sunlight and freshly fallen snow and a desire to look closely.  As a longtime ski area manager, I was able to experience this joy many times.  I invented the concept of “portholes” in 1995 and these are the largest that I’ve done.  All the non-natural colors are dyed wood veneers.  In addition to the 8 portholes, there is a ninth flake visible on the underside that can also be seen by looking inside.
