Eye-catching and Energy Efficient Custom Glass Installation
Summer is just around the corner which means many of us are dreaming of long days lounging beneath the sunshine. While I am slightly partial to the east coast sun here in Florida, I must say there is something so fresh and uplifting about the west coast sunshine!
Can you imagine walking in to a hotel that is California-themed and filled with the soft and flowery vibe that ‘cali’ has to offer? Award-winning glass artist and lighting designer, Julie Conway of Illuminata Art glass Design, recently announced the completion of her custom Cali inspired hand-blown glass wall installation at the Hilton Hotel of Orange County.
Julie was approached by the Hilton Hotel design team to create an art glass piece to compliment the California-themed remodel of the hotel. The art glass consists of 27 dazzling orange California poppies that are 24 inches in diameter and cover 22 feet of the reception interior wall!
“I am very pleased and delighted with this installation, an iconic image of California, and it’s universal appeal” – Julie Conway, Glass Artist
To make this California dream a reality, Julie and her team formed the over-sized poppies from molten glass at 2100 F with breath and fire. The fixture’s stunning gallery lighting uses full-spectrum LED technology to make the installation energy efficient!
