There are 6 total panels that are 30" x 42". These were commissioned for a new tenant finish in an existing building. The lobby has glass fronts leading into back offices.
The designer wanted the artwork to function visually on both sides of the glass walls of the interior lobby. Although my blown/fused glass was opaque, light still transmitted through them so the"light" image from the glass could be viewed from the inside as well as the glass surface from the outside.
I worked closely with the designer to establish the size and design of the suspended framework. I also sampled the glass on every step of the progress to gain approval of the designer and the client.
I had been experimenting with blown/fused glass on smaller artwork projects. This commission represents my first commercial use of my innovation of blown/fused glass. I appreciate the faith that the designer and the client placed in me to establish this work.

[ 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.
