For this rehabbed Mission Style home in Chicago's Edgewater neighborhood, Heather created a flow design drawing on colors in the home's palate. The 12"x12" mosaic of vitreous glass is complemented by 2x2 glass surround tile, sourced by the artist.

The Glimpse Series has graduated from art boards to an architectural installation as a fireplace surround, lending a modern sensibility to a Victorian rehab by the architectural firm of Soucie Horner. The fireplace is a focal point of a child's bedroom. Playfully tying form to the fireplace's original function, flow's curves take on "sparks" of iridescent red and orange glass.
