back to main   Etching Commission: These pieces were etched by a glass artist, sandblasted actually, from designs I provided. These are the
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.
