A fabulous al fresco feature, Cascade is a waterfall-inspired glass wall overlooking a landscaped garden in Toronto, Canada, on the shores of Lake Ontario. This 10-ft. long, seven-ft. high glass installation was meticulously crafted of 77 ladle-poured glass blocks, shimmering in various tones of blue and green. Even the texture of water is echoed in the piece. And fittingly, the glass wall was incorporated into a real waterfall, which lets the muse flow freely over the glass.

Another really cool, contemporary design is the Glass Rock Garden – if you like unusual, modern art in unexpected places, you'll love this! Located on a rooftop, Glass Rock Garden is a 14-by-4-ft. stainless steel "pond," filled with small stones and three large "rocks" made of a series of 1/2-inch thick sculpted glass plates.
