Fused Glass from Tropics of Costa Rica

Glass from another life

Glass in architecture

Back when I used to be an architect, I designed an amazing house for an amazing couple

on a private wooded lakeshore.

The house was all about light and water.

It was also about glass, which reflects the light and water throughout.

A glass roof slicesthrough the center of the house, bringing the lake and the forest inside.

We sand-blasted it to ease the vertigo.

Glass tiles in the main bath share woodland colors.

Now that I’m a serious glass artist instead of an architect  – as serious as I can be in tropical Costa Rica – I’d love to make fused glass building materials.  What do you need?

  1. Great ideas for my house! Love the tiles in the bathroom, the hanging light fixtures and the mosaic stone path in the bathroom!
