Oriental Luminescence

About this project

These pieces were inspired by the late works of Louis Comfort Tiffany
( 1848 - 1933) Whose experiments with layering painted glass to show multiple textures and panels revolutionized the making of stained glass and reinvented the medium.
The glass panels are hand painted and fired and then are set in strong laminated glass cases with a concealed LED light panel.
The inspiration for the artwork was botanical and referencing the style of the Southern Song Dynasty ( 960 -1279 AD)
