Seven hand-painted stained glass: Float Glass, Stainless Steel and Stainless Steel Cable. Each Element: 6ft High x 11’ wide x 1” thick

Goals

This work was commissioned by the University of Houston System, for the University of Houston Victoria Campus. The goal of the piece was to create a work that would liven the blank white atrium and create a place to gather.

Process

The works are composed in two layers of glass - each glass sheet is hand painted by airbrush, fired and then hand painted and fired. Thus each sheet of glass is painted and fired two times. The two layers of glass were then, tempered and laminated together with the hand painted layers facing each other.
