Belmont University Chapel


At the altar area is a wall mounted rosette relief sculpture, 12’ diameter, that is composed of dichroic glass, glass jewels laminated to glass elements positioned several inches in front of the background. Surrounding the glass elements in a circular light assembly that illuminates the dichoic glass casting and reflecting colored light throughout the composition.


The objective of the work was to establish a focal element for the chapel and to create an contemplative ambience.


I worked closely with the interior designer and the architect to integrate the work with the design of the architecture and the interior design.
