25” x 95”. Blown glass, acid etched, lead crystal prisms, laminated in three layers. There is no paint in this window.
A simple and elegant expression for a building of similar nature in a small village in Germany, the window is meant to console friends of the recently deceased. The leaded crystal prisms cast rainbows onto the casket during morning services.
There was no collaboration, the client trusted me entirely. I did however collaborate closely with Derix Glasstudios to render the painting entirely in blown etched glass and silver stain.
In Germany there are often funeral chapels in village cemeteries that are used to hold services. This was a lovely small village in the Taunus mountain area.

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.
