Stephen Rhoades, an artist of many forms, lives and works in Vermont, nestled in the mountains. He lives his life creating and exploring what it means to think outside the box. A fabricator of wood, glass, clay, metal and anything else in between, building a conversation or sparking an idea is what he strives to find. Stephen has spent the last few years building and managing art studios. He believes that communication and understanding of the art around us is just as important as enjoying it. He invites you to not only question the world around you but question yourself.

The Portals are a series of 7 platforms that use a combination of mirrors and LED lights to trick the eye into seeing an infinite tunnel of light into the ground at night, and act as large mirrors during the day. These can support human weight.
