Five glass panels 20″ high x 10″ wide.
Designed as a carefully managed transition across five panels—a collage of movement from the abstract to the representational. The client requested the concept, which I loved. It truly shows my process—the piece becomes not only a commission, but a study in my technique. I’m even fond of the smaller size of the panels, which I feel helps focus the viewer’s eye to what is truly important.
Roger Thomas was born in Los Angeles, California in 1951. He began working with stained glass in the 1970’s, and by the 1980’s was developing his own innovative techniques with fused glass. After moving to Portland, OR to take a job at his favorite glass factory in 1988, he established his second studio and began to “make things” in earnest.
