Balloon Motif Window
I designed this panel a few years ago as a show piece for an Arts & Craft furniture show. The glass in each quadrant of the circle changes position from each repeat to the next. I could envision this panel being used as a series of transom windows in a house or a porch full of windows, still waiting for that commission!
This Bungalow styled light was designed to feature 4 mosaic tiles that were to be incorporated into the design. The client, an artist requested that his trademark red box from his logo be incorporated into the design on the side panels which adds a fun whimsical element to it.
An existing light fixture was modified by creating a new extended framework made from stamped brass that was soldered together to make a framework for the glass panels to fit into. The trademark red square was fused on the surface of the clear glass that then was sand-blasted to conceal the light from the light bulb.
Learned a few new techniques in creating the framework that may come in handy in the future, fun project!
