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.
This piece was created with recycled glass and mixed media. It is textural and dynamic in that the light bounces into the piece and is reflected back out. The piece arrives ready to hang. 9″ Diameter.
Remember this green? It always reminds me of spring. Or fresh vegetables. And it’s back for home interiors! I know so because I’ve been getting inquiries about creating pieces with this colorway. I view each commission as a collaboration. So, when I was asked to create a six-piece ombre set with custom colors, I was thrilled.
A great many thanks go to Art Expressions for commissioning my work for their client, a hospital in Lake Forest Illinois. Art Expressions is a long-time art consultancy firm located near the hospital that was charged with the responsibility of commissioning art for an entire new wing. What a huge project! When they contacted me last year to discuss a possible commission, I immediately forwarded them samples to include in their presentation to their client. Lucky for me, their client chose my work, among others. Many ideas went back and forth (brainstorming with a client is one of my favorite parts of the process) before the client settled on a design for a large installation consisting of eight 20 x 20″ panels, with coloration and gradation flows connecting the entire composition. Overall, the installation measures 8 feet wide by 4 feet tall. Here’s how the final install turned out (spoiler alert – I love it!): Thanks again Art Expressions! I hope we get to do this again soon.
Small, like a wall flower, this piece is sweet and to the point. Created from reclaimed glass, vivid purple and bronze-toned metallic foil, it measures just 6.5″ in diameter. Suitable to hang in any small spot that begs for a burst of color and texture.
This richly textured wall hanging is a dynamic combination of kiln-formed reclaimed glass combined with pigments, epoxies, dyes, mirror and metal foil. The piece hangs flush on the wall using keyhole openings on the reverse. Multiple hanging openings allow for reorientation of the piece in four different configurations. 23.5″ Diameter.
