Maricopa County Forensic Science Center, Phoenix, AZ. Cast glass art panels with fused dichroic ribbons and bits. The Forensic Science Center has a problem with staff retention because of the nature of the job as a morgue. They asked me to create a work of art that would uplift the spirits of their staff, and to obscure upstairs passageway while allowing the transmittance of sunlight from the interior atrium of the building into the lobby. I designed art glass that would in combination with the other lobby finishes create a cathedral-like effect in the lobby of the contemporary style institutional building.
