Technique: Multiple layers of screen printing with colored vitreous enamels combined with sandblasting worked into safety glass.
Working with the incredible team at Peters Studios was an experience that I will always cherish. Every person I worked with was insightful and knowledgable. Together, we created a project that was the perfect translation of my work and ideas. Peters Studios made the fabrication process exciting and full of discovery. I would trust them with any project.

DESCRIPTION: "Inheritance"references patterns derived from those of American household glass objects, including Depression glass, carnival glass, and early American pressed glass.
The overarching compositions of each set of windows references the symmetry found in stained glass windows of gothic and gothic revival architecture. The sandblasted details of the glass create areas of shadow and light, not unlike the function of tracery found in gothic churches.
