This project consists of five cast glass panels for a private residence in Houston, Texas. For each piece, we used silk screens and fine glass powders to apply imagery of plants and flowers to multiple glass sheets before firing them individually. Subsequent firings combined these sheets into thick, multilayered panels. Several of the cast panels were then placed on a hand-cut mold and fired once again to impress images into the surface of the glass. The resulting pieces accentuate the natural color palette and calming atmosphere of the space.

This home in the heart of Boulder, CO, with views of the nearby Rocky Mountains, incorporates both traditional and contemporary glass techniques. The front entry door and sliding, arched, double library doors all feature vintage, rare mouth-blown colored glass, and handmade deep zipper-cut bevels in a contemporary leaded design. The window in the master bath brings color to the room through silkscreened photographic imagery in multiple layers of kiln-cast glass, creating privacy while allowing light to pass through the thick layer of glass.
