An experiment in techniques, this wall installation is mixed media and glass, mounted to a wood substrate and hangs via a french cleat system.

At 70″ wide by 40″ tall, this mixed media glass installation is like the largest glass piece I’ve completed to date. It’s created from multiple kiln loads of glass that were fired over the course of weeks and then mounted with mixed media, dyes and metallics on a wood substrate. Once finished and approved, the piece had to be crated and sent via box truck across the county before arriving at its final destination in Orland Park, IL. It is now displayed in a new building that is part of a Health Care Campus just outside Chicago. The coloration and design is meant to be an abstract representation of Lake Michigan.

When I was contacted by one of my favorite designers regarding a possible project for a hospital chapel, I was thrilled. A healthcare facility in the greater Chicago area was finishing a new addition to their campus that included a chapel and needed artwork for the chapel entrance wall. There was only one small catch . . . the wall was convex. This is an interesting design challenge. It was a large entryway that would require a large piece. Larger than what could fit in the kiln. In addition, the wall was convex and would not accommodate our go-to mounting options. I love working with designers and creative types. Together, we solved the challenge with a proposal for an elongated triptych. Each piece measures 46″ tall by only 10″ wide. The smaller width of each piece allowed just enough to accommodate the curvature of the wall. The composition of “Ascension” is full of symbolism.
