Abstract Flower Transom
I made a transom for a customer. He wanted flowers, but more abstract and classical looking ones. Because of the long dimension, I made this a triptych with a flower at the center of each panel. The customer wanted to match blue glass lighting fixtures, so the frame and some of the accents are the two shades of blue from these fixtures. The flowers and accents are all made with streaky glass to made them appear as more opaque foreground objects against a clear, swirly background. The panels is approximately 35″ x 18″ and uses both 1/4″ and 5/32″ lead came.
Pictures of the window installed coming soon!
Mondrian-Like Door Panels
The customers wanted 6 panels for the door going into their living room. They wanted something geometric and Mondrian-like but with transparent and pastel colors — champagne, yellow, grey, pale blue, and clear. There are dimensions that are common across a few of the panels and some lines continue from one panel to the other for a unified composition. Each panel is approximately 21-3/4″ x 11-1/4″ and were made with 1/4″ lead came with a zinc border.
These are the panels not installed yet…pictures of them installed are coming soon!
