Olympic Proportions: World’s Largest Glass Skis Designed by Architect

By Stacy Straczynski, Assocaite Editor

If anyone in Vancouver missed that the 2010 Winter Olympics were underway (Pretty hard to believe right!), they’ll get a huge artistic reminder when they see these 16-ft.-tall skis that were installed outside architectural glass artist Joel Berman’s Vancouver-based studio, Joel Berman Glass Studio. The pair of blue, white, and red skis were commissioned by K2 Sports, a Seattle-based snow ski and snowboard manufacturer, are the largest all glass skis in the world and features new glass-on-glass color printing technology on fused colored glass.

The skis will be on display in the downtown Vancouver entertainment epicenter through Feb. 28, after which they will be moved permanently to KI’s 3 00,000-sq.-ft. headquarters facilities.
