The Noah's Ark Project

Glass has been flying all over the studio and the kiln has been going none stop. Our latest commission is for a fused art glass mural with Noah's Ark as the theme. Kiln formed pieces will be adhered do a series of five existing windows to complete a mural of Noah's Ark with the animals as the main focus. Each window measures approximately 40 inches wide by 59 inches tall. The clients have requested that large areas of the windows be left bare and that mostly transparent glass be used. The fused pieces are being contour fused so there is a lot of texture and dimension to the mural.

I am an animal lover so this project has been very dear to my heart and I am loving working on it. I can't wait to get to the studio each morning and open the kiln to see the latest pieces waiting inside. Today a pair of tigers were brought out of the kiln and came to life.

Tonight a pair of tucans and the dove of peace are sleep in the kiln and I can't wait to see them in the morning.
