The client needed two vertical pieces to be hung side by side for a wall treatment at the University of Oklahoma.


The designer found a piece of ours that her clients at the University of Oklahoma liked at the Karg Art Glass Gallery. Working through the gallery she asked if we could create another piece to complement it. We sketched a complementary piece and put the sketch online at our website next to the photograph of the piece that first attracted their eyes. They approved the sketch and asked us to fill in the patina colors to work well with the original piece. We built it and shipped it to the gallery. Simple as that!

Additional Information

This project ran very smoothly, especially considering that there were four separate parties involved - the clients themselves, the designer, the gallery and our studio.
