Forest Glass Blinds - Functional Art
Commissioned by a private residence in Geneva.
Prior it’s permanent installation in Geneva I’ve shown ‘Forest’ at 53 Degrees North at a fabulous exhibition space – @schoolhousegallery, York – where the public voted Forest their most favourite piece in the show!
I always enjoy designing glass art for a specific architectural location, which is what already gives my artwork a very useful purpose. However, combining glass art with an actual function is what really excites me. That’s why I’ve designed and made Glass Blinds. The piece is not only an aesthetic feature, but also a practical part of a building with its moveable glass louvers constantly tweaking the look and atmosphere of the interior.
Due to the combination of techniques the panel behaves as a natural light box and remains luminous even on a cloudy day.
Some of the fabrication methods I’ve used include hand painting, silk screening, silver stain and deep etched and surface sandblast. I’ve also added some fine details hand painted with genuine platinum lustre.
