Long and narrow, 4' x 8', glass kiln fused onto burnished copper panels, mounted with French cleats.
This composition is installed in an elegant, marble reception area. The client wanted a brilliantly colored installation to enliven and enrich the austere quality of the white marble. Sunset over water was the client's favorite subject.
Sunsets are one of my favorite subjects, too. This composition is horizontal, creating a serene and welcoming reception to all.
Glass on copper, aka copper enamel, will not fade in intense light. Indeed, the depth and color sparkle in direct sunlight. Glass cleans easily and beautifully, also.

CODA: Collaboration of Design + Art
The global online community that celebrates design projects featuring commissioned artworks.
[ 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.
