Tandem Friends School – Charlottesville, VA

This window was created for the art room of a private school, grades 5 thorugh 12. With the tree as their symbol, we wanted the window to express the energy, creativity, and spontaneity of the students. The tree was created using rolled stained glass with varying textures to give the effect of light filtering through the leaves. The surrounding area was created by hand beveling flash glass (a layer of color on a clear base) from West Germany. When completed, we made around 15 glass leaves with our flame-working and attached them to the window as if they were blowing in the wind.
