Lighter, stronger, and less expensive than glass, multiwall polycarbonate panels are suitable for a wide range of design applications. Many contemporary designers and artists use polycarbonate panels in their creative visions, demonstrating the versatility of this translucent material.

Virginia-based artist Kendall Buster has used a combination of LEXAN™ 6mm opal polycarbonate panels and aircraft cable to create some amazing large-scale hanging sculptures. Her works have been exhibited and/or commissioned by notable venues worldwide including the SCAD Museum of Art, Savannah, Georgia, Suyama Space in Seattle, Washington, and the Van Every/Smith Galleries, Davidson, North Carolina.

Trained as a microbiologist, Kendall Buster merges art and science in her work. Because of this unusual merger, she is regarded as one of the most innovative sculptors in the United States. Kendall’s hanging sculptures have been described as “drawings in space”. This being in reference to their open design that permits people to see through the structures.
