Prototypes: Cast Panels

A look into some fun R&D

Recently I created cast glass panels roughly 18" x 18" x 3/4" made from murrine suspended in clear glass.  I experimented with panels years ago and I'm excited to revisit this format.  I'm intending these as individual art pieces as well for architectural work and larger-scale installations like hotel receptions.  I'm still exploring lighting, mounting and making new panels with color and detail, but this one is a great prototype to test ideas.  Two are shown here--right out of the kiln, mounted in a color-changing lightbox and mocked up in a hotel reception setting.   I'll be making more panels in a range of colors this spring.
