This spiral-dyed red, gold and orange was inspired by Maria Telkes.  Considered one of the founders of solar thermal storage systems, Telkes was a scientist, inventor and biophysicist.  She created solar cells to desalinate water at sea and made her home the first solar heated home in Dover, MA.

"Sunlight will be used as a source of energy sooner or later" - Maria Telkes
