Private Residence, Chicago, IL 2016

Commission: Reflect 3.1 48” x 30” handcut glass inlayed in matte black grout

Project Goals

The architect client requested a vertical composition in a scale appropriate for a mid-century modern pale brick fireplace.


The clients spent time in the studio looking at compositional approaches and glass palette. Client was drawn to a monochromatic blacks and silvers/grays palette. Variation and light is added in the backgrounded "city view."


Reflect 3.1 was commissioned for a residential setting and features an abstract view of Mies Van der Rohe's 900/910 Lake Shore Drive buildings. Shimmering glass catches light to offer a dynamic art piece in this lovely architect renovated mid-century modern home.
