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.

One of my favorite things to work on is commissions. Such was the case for this newly remodeled residence in Illinois. And can you believe they took these photos themselves? Truly Pinterest worthy, their new space is quite dreamy. Each of these highly textural pieces measures 10 x 10.” Overall, the installation is 35 x 35″ as installed.
This brilliant red triptych is a pop of color for the wall. The set was created with kiln-fired glass, pigments, variegated metals, all mounted in a cradle and framed in black. It’s impactful at 52″ wide by 20″ tall, yet also zen with flowing texture that provides layers and layers of depth and interest. Mounted glass is an excellent choice for public spaces where the beauty of glass is desired, but the fragility is a concern. This set arrives framed, wired, and ready to hang.

Large-scale new work in mounted glass for safer transport and installation! The piece measures 37″ wide x 49″ tall and is a stand out option for any public environment where highly textural glass and metallics are desired. “Glacier Horizon,” was created in multiple layers and firings using reclaimed glass and is mounted on wood panel with multiple mixed media for strength. The piece arrives ready to hang with french cleat hardware already installed.
Inspired by Koi, this sanke diptych is inspired by my favorite type of fish. Sanke are typically red and white and black koi that are so well known. The texture of the portal creates an effect similar to the glint of color underneath the water of a koi pond. This diptych is created with reclaimed glass, pigments, ink, and mixed media. The set arrives ready to hang and includes both piece, one 11″ and one 9″ diameter.

Something new, some blue, and um . . . merlot. This dynamic spectrum window is wispy, airy and highly mirrored. It reflects light, refraction and has just the right amount of compositional coloration to draw curiosity. Measures 26 x 26″ and will arrive framed as shown and ready to hang.
