Overview

The design of the glass wall sculpture consisted of 70 hand blown glass forms. The total dimensions of the wall sculpture is 20 ft wide.

Goals

The design was for the executive seating area of the building. The colors needed to compliment the interior patterns and decor. We were fortunate to be able to visit the site location for this project. The Endo Corporation is located near an old rock quarry. This gave us a better understanding of the surrounding environment… And aided us in creating the design concept. The surrounding rock quarry became the main inspiration for the color tones and overall design.This modern glass art design was inspired by the surrounding environment of a nearby rock quarry.The warm color tones and grays of the hand blown glass forms play off of the view of the rock quarry.

Process

Glass sculpture installation by Bernard Katz Glass was facilitated through Kate Sweeney, Founder of Perspective, an art advisory firm based in London, UK. We worked closely with Kate, the head art advisor, and the architects. We created a design to fit their criteria and ideas. A contemporary design with ‘ball’ like forms and neutral-warm tones was requested.

Additional Information

To make sure the proper placement of each glass form was correct; a full scale template was made. For the final installation, each glass form was carefully adhered to the wall one at a time. This ensured for proper placement of each piece.
