The open entrance to the client's office, adjacent to the hallway and facing the dining room, was the perfect location for this seemingly floating glass door.
Light seeping through the windows on the opposing wall of this doorway underline the colors and effect of this frameless art glass sliding door. It serves both, as a privacy screen and focal point to the dining room, as the door itself becomes the perfect fusion of elegant interior design aesthetic and functionality.
With the desire to integrate art glasswork into their newly remodeled home, it came natural to this family, who is a patron and friend of Gordon Huether Studio, to commission this art piece with Gordon. The open entrance to the client's office, adjacent to the hallway and facing the dining room, was the perfect location for this seemingly floating glass door.
The artist worked very closely with the owners of this private residence. Huether drafted four different concepts, of which the client then selected their favorite. The final collage was transcribed onto this beautifully crafted office sliding glass door, using fused glass and acid etching.
