“Clear Tex”

The five different lights made for the Kenin/Luchs' residence in Portland, OR. vary in size from 3' x 3' panels over the range, to a 7' x 2' sliding pantry door to a 3/4" thick backsplash/room divider 77"wide x 16" tall. Budget was the primary concern and textured window glass was the perfect solution. I wanted a design that incorporated the screen motif found in the entry way next to the kitchen and that could be used for all three of the different shaped pieces of glass. I made my design into a dimensional pattern that was imprinted into a bed of sand inside of a large glass furnace. Each piece of glass was gently placed on top of the sand and heated to 1400 degrees F. where the glass was just soft enough to pick up the texture and image of my pattern. Each panel was fired by itself then drilled to accommodate the mounting hardware. Besides the glass components, I also designed the stainless steel mounting system for the backsplash and the pots and pan holder. This was a fun project with lots of client involvement and we came under budget.
