Each form is Life size, some are full , some 3/4's, some half, depending on the locations. The glass material was a 3/8" thick PPG Solar Cool which has been discontinued in the 1990's and replaced by a thinner less expensive and less artistically desirable materials
The desire was to manipulate visual imagery of the female Torso using porcelain, body casting, Glasses with varying surface qualities, line, reflection, illusion. I was free to do "anything", but the concept based on form and surface exploration drawn from my series of female nude pencil and photographic studies.
None, I was the artist, designer, fabricator installer... etc. Had Merkel and Matthew help along the way.
The forms ended up being beautifully sensual and almost 'erotic" ... and I still have several extra that that I made after the project.. It was FUN to do !

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.
