Designed by Wayne Design Group for the Charles A. Sammons Cancer Center exterior, this kilnformed glass water feature, measuring 36" x 78" x 108.5," is a tremendous example of a successful exterior application of kiln-glass, Bullseye Studio's strength in working with others to meet design challenges, as well as the healing capacity of movement, art, sounds of nature, and water.
The goals of this project were to successfully place an evocative water feature made of glass in an exterior setting and to have it withstand UV and other environmental conditions while retaining strength, full color saturation, and remain a stunning and healing water feature in the healthcare landscape.
Working with the designer, Bullseye Studio fabricated twelve panels, each specially designed for the water to cascade precisely from one 4" glass slab to the next, as well as to achieve full color saturation and color placement as specified by the designer. The total undertaking required partnering with an engineer, a stoneworker, a fountain specialist, contractors and others in the trade.

[ 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.
