Op. 486 Garden Stele Wb


Garden Stele

Six glass panels, various sizes.
Frame 120” high x 30” wide.

The client, a garden designer, requested some artwork for her own garden. I used my favorite abstract techniques and color combinations and kept the glimmering translucence of the glass as the most important aspect of the piece. In the morning sunlight, the piece is really at its best (and apparently impresses everyone in the neighborhood).

The frame was adapted from the stylish deco remnants from their balcony railing of the house, and ties the architectural elements together nicely, while the boys helpfully stand by to demonstrate the scale.


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.
