Using Decorative Glass to Create an Urban Forest
Goldray Glass printed the design onto a technographic interlayer film,before laminating it between two lites of glass.
Nature has inspired artistic creativity for centuries.Whether it be a work of art made to capture the night sky,
To create his design,Finch translated the leaves into an abstract circular pattern,using five different hues and opacities to control and vary the amount of light filtered through.
Working with Finch’s design team,Goldray Glass then printed the design onto a technographic interlayer film,before laminating it between two lites of glass.Using this method ensured the correct depth and vibrancy of color was achieved,while making the glass safe for use in an overhead canopy installation.
The completed piece was titled“There is Another Sky”,a reference to an Emily Dickinson poem.The second part of There is Another Sky is located at ground level,where Finch installed 100“fireflies”in the form of colored LED lights.
Goldray Glass was thrilled to have been a part of bringing Spencer Finch’s artistic vision to life and we continue to work on many exciting projects with his team.
