This set of 4 panels is meant to maintain an open feeling of the glass defining and being cut into by the space around it. The optical effects of the surfaces are done w/ the idea of passing by and thru this interaction. Each panel is roughly 36"x22"x3/4". They are held inplace by only the top and bottom so the exposed vertical edges can help express the movement w/in each panel.

These are very interesting glass pieces. Can you provide us with some more information about them? What are they used for? Are they just sculptural or do they serve a purpose? Did you personally carve or mold them and make the frames? What sort of process was used to create the design?

More information would be great since they look really cool. :)

Txs! the cutouts were done w/ diamond tools and then the panels were slumped over forms in a big kiln. the design started w/ laying out the 1st pattern and then doing variations on that for the following 3.

That answers a few of my questions. :)

The glass looks awesome with the wood flooring. :thumbsup:

The buttjoints on the framing look terrible. And the exposed edges do as well.

framing is what you do when you build a house :)

Beautiful! Really, I think it's pretty cheap they didn't give you any comment on the DD. I mean, I for one have absolutely no idea how to make something like that. Is it very hard?

Txs! yes and no- takes time and some serious equipment- and some trail and error getting the pour (molten glass) and mold right. kinda like everything else- once you figure it all out it seems a easier.
