'Oasis' is an eight panel suspended sculpture designed to ‘bring life to the bus island’ where it is installed. Four glass panels represent the elements of Earth, Air, Fire and Water. Four aluminum sculptures are inspired by symbols of Good Fortune from around the globe. and serve as a ‘lucky charm’ to the metro traveler. This project
has been featured in Public Art Review, a national publication showcasing international site-specific projects.
The glass was fabricated by Franz Mayer of Munich utilizing the float glass technique. The art image is silk-screened onto tempered glass using powdered glass in lieu of printing ink. This powdered glass is then fired at high temperature in large kilns, which melts and fuses the image onto the tempered glass. This creates a highly permanent glass image that is suitable for outdoor installation.

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.
