Technique: Screen-printed and airbrushed colored vitreous enamels combined with heat-mirrored glass and photovoltaic cells.

I have collaborated with Peters Studios on over 100 major projects during the past fifteen years, and it has been a great experience! The studio is dedicated to providing excellent craftsmanship and continual innovation with results that often exceed my expectations.

DESCRIPTION: The Theatre was originally constructed in 1926 as an ice house where large blocks of ice intended for freight were stored. Renovations led to the three-story glass envelope that surrounds the entire north, east, and west sides of the facility with Sarah’s “Waterglass” painting, inspired by the shifting pattern of light on water. The glass provides thermal insulation and has unique, electricity-generating windows.

“Waterglass” is a world first for integrating art glass and photovoltaics with heat mirror technology, bringing it to the highest insulation values possible for glass.
