Commissioned for a private residence in San Francisco. Fourteen layers of clear plate glass set into a box in stairway balustrade and lit from within the box. 1/4″ plate glass, shaped, beveled, laminated, air-brushed mountain images within. (Functional hand railing is on other side of stairs.) Full size is about 4″ x 4″ x 48″. ©1991 This concept would also be appropriate as a horizontal piece.
Wall between dining room and living room in private residence in Sonoma County. Seven “cascades” of laminated optically clear 1/4″ plate Starphire®.

Client desired light, airy, even ethereal effect. Width 9′, height 6′, depth 2.5″. Lit from beneath by a string of LED bulbs. ©2008

Windblown Leaves of Glass
Installed at Public Glass, San Francisco, CA
Fleeting glimpses of a memory.
The 26 leaves in this 15 foot long piece are made of recycled commercial plate glass to which vandalized San Francisco bus shelter glass shards have been fused. Color is added via airbrush using fusible colors, then the colored plate is slumped into molds to make leaves. By placing the fused glass in my mold in different ways, I get an infinite number of shapes. Some pieces are fired three or four times. Size of leaves vary. They are roughly 7” x 9” x 4”, spread over a space about 15’ x 7’.
