Integrating glass alongside other architectural surfaces creates the opportunity for both a conceptual and material dialogue. I am interested in re-thinking ornamentation as an opportunity for meaningful viewer engagement.
The niche is small and seen at a distance from the backyard patio, so bold, simple compositional elements with color palette tie-ins will create an integrated installation. Abstracted tree trunks using vertical elements play off the strong horizontal patterning of the brick. The completely lovely concept of home as nest is expressed using crisp, graphic elements.
The completed installation creates an interesting material dialogue between the polished glass and textured brick. The vertical elements play off the strong horizontal brick pattern, creating a new view in the niche with an integrated palette of whites, grays, ambers and violet.
