|"Grove". 2012 Kent Municipal Courthouse, Kent WA. Steel, sandblasted tempered glass, copper and aluminum leaf. 3.5'-4' high, 14 feet long, 3" wide.|
|Detail as seen from silver/exit side|
|Detail from copper/entrance side.|
These details show the dimensionality resulting from sandblasting the images into the glass prior to leafing.
View of the copper side seen by those entering and by the police behind the counter. By using a translucent material like glass, I was able to bring a long artwall into a compressed space without making it feel smaller - actually opening it up with interest & depth of the materials.
