Technique: Dichroic glass with laminated jewels and bevel.
This detailed project is another example of a successful collaboration with Peters Studios. The project required a creative approach using bent dichroic art glass and dichroic acrylic, which Peters executed with great skill, sensitivity and care. Peters Studios always provides vital expertise throughout the design and fabrication process.

DESCRIPTION: The design allows for thought, interpretation, and reinterpretation many times over: One might read it as flowing water, a waterfall, waves of the mighty Mississippi, or waves of "success.” One might just as easily see it as an elegant triumphal arch, hovering above the entrance hallway. The floor design evokes yet more waves, corresponding to the glass waves above. These seven elements are a reference to the seven dimensions of wellness.
