This 4' x 4' window was a commission for the Lamb's vacation home in Central Oregon. The image of the aspen trees was taken for a photo by the client, Colin Lamb who had studied photography with Ansel Adams. Because the window is viewed from both sides in ever changing natural and artificial reflected and transmitted light, the goal was to create a piece that would carry itself with a strong presence in all of the different lighting and viewing situations. I used vitreous paints that are fused into the surface of a base glass. The process involved many firings. A layer of glass paint is carefully applied, allowed to dry, imagery is scratched into the surface and then each piece is fired in a kiln.
