Commission for five 42"H x 24"W x 3.5"deep panels of coated handmade paper and fused glass embedded with silver leaf to span 10 feet for a long hallway.
As the artist I began making sketches for the art consultant so that we could agree on our direction. The design and color palette evolved from this sketch. We worked up a stair-step concept of layers of a textured caste paper and slick and colorful fused glass. Gatorfoam cutouts were mounted on heavy wood stretcher bars and large wood french cleats were used for easy and secure mounting.

[ 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.
