Private Residence, Kazakhstan. 7.5 metres wide X 2.4 metres high
Toughened and laminated cast glass with screen printing on the reverse surface. Powder Coated Steel frame.
In the grounds of a private residence in Astana Kazakhstan a large back-lit feature wall provides a screen for an engineering plant room. The household are horse lovers and have commissioned a screen in laminated cast and screen printed glass, the background image is of horses in movement across the large screen.
The design has been translated into a 3 dimensional mould and glass has been slumped into place at high temperature in the kiln. The glass has then been hand painted on the reverse and laminated to create a very strong resilient glass wall, with back lighting to be seen both day and night.

[ manifesto ]
Art matters. Attention to the details of our environment leads to love of place, which brings us to take responsibility for the spaces where we live and work. And by extension, the people with whom we live and work. And by extension, to our local communities, our cities, our nations, and our world.
We champion the role of artists in our society. We need artists to provide us with inspiration, creativity, and imagination, and to help us envision a better world.
Architects and designers know that remarkable design can change everything. They connect the dots across disciplines, collaborating with artists to make the world a more beautiful place. They are the ultimate patrons of the arts.
In the process, design professionals promote imagination and creativity, and through their commissions, make original art integral to and accessible in people's lives.
Art in our public and private spaces helps us fight ordinary buildings, ordinary streets, ordinary cities. We celebrate the extraordinary.
The architecture of our buildings and the design of our interiors affect our happiness and well-being. Each of us deserves a daily dose of inspiration.
