In 2019, AdventHealth opened a new outpatient health and wellness facility in Overland Park, Kansas. Rock Cottage Glassworks was approached by the architect in regards to a custom atrium sculpture. What they were looking for was a piece of art that supported the aesthetics of wellness, something that felt welcoming. The work aimed to unify the interiors with a warm, residential color palette. The 6' by 8.5' chandelier showcases ninety-nine blown glass rondels.
AdventHealth was looking to comfort patients through the finishes and aesthetics of their facility. What Rock Cottage Glassworks was looking to do with this direction was give visitors a unique wayfinding sculpture that welcomed them into the building. The glass colors were chosen in a warm, fall-inspired palette to continue the wood and stone color story.
This project took significant 3D modeling, metal fabrication, and time in the glass shop to come to life.

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.
