cast acrylic

This is another really nice example of edge glow, or live edge, but this time in a block of cast acrylic. This material is used for interior applications and trophies for example. It is possible to cast 3D shapes, or laser cut a profile from sheet. 

The cast PMMA (poly methyl methacrylate) has been doped with a fluorescing dye. So in ambient lighting the block appears to light-up and glow.
