Lorenz railing and light shelf

Lorenz railing nw large

1" thick Starfire kiln formed plate glass

made for paul Lamb Architects

2011

This glass railing allows light to penetrate a rather dark stairwell. The shelf above the kitchen is more sculpture than function; diffusing light and creating interest...

Solarium Desk with Credenza

Img 3141

mdf, solid surface counter and starphire glass

collaboration with Studio K Glass

January 2013

My first custom installation of 2013. Thanks to Kathleen Ash of Studio K for all the tips and advice on using the proper glass adhesive. One aspect of the design I didn't fully appreciate until I photographed it was how the layout with the tile creates a bit of a glass box optical illusion which is evident in some of the shots. The vertical leg is set into the tile work.

Bordello Floor Lamp

Bordello floor lamp 001

Forged Steel, Blown Glass
dimensions 60"x12"x16"

September 2011

This lamp was fabricated for the Guild's exhibit at the Perry Mansion, and is a continuation of the Bordello Lamp series that I have been working on for about 10 years.  The main feature that qualifies the lamp to be a part of the series is the shade.  Initially the lamps shades had colored and textured paper, but now, through a collaboration with glass artist Carlyn Ray, we have successfully blown glass into the shades.

Media Center Cabinet

Fishbain cab lo-res

Figured Maple, Purple Heart, Glass, Aluminum
dimensions 90"h. x 96"w. x 22"d.

made for Fishbain

January 2010

This piece was the last piece the designer placed in the livingroom.  The owner wanted a new TV and a unique piece of furniture that would hide components and wires.  

The designer wanted the piece to reference the mid-century modern architecture and furnishings while still making a strong statement of it's own.
