back to main Etching Commission: These pieces were etched by a
glass artist, sandblasted actually, from designs I provided. These are
test pieces that were reproduced five each and they were given to me on
the condition that I don't sell them. I was working through the design firm, Hirsch-Bedner. You can see in the pics that I
put them in my windows in one room. The ones used in the final piece were
placed in a very elegant mahogeny (Honduran rain forest i'm afraid)
frame setting one end of a hotel bar off from a hallway. The bar was
raised to, further setting it off and on either side of the actual bar
were oil pastel drawings I did of musicians, ranging from Dylan to Beethoven... see here(in
the right column). I shot these images under different lighting,
day and night, to give a sense of how they vary in different light.
When the hotel changed hands the installation was scrapped and the
glass ended up in the collection of Suzy and Bill Leveille.
