Our Featured Projects.
The sculpture was created as a visual expression of growth, change and transformation. The spiraling elements of curved dichroic glass establish a vertical movement that creates a form suggestive of a flower. The dichroic glass was used because of its characteristic of changing color as it is seen from varying positions, which creates a dynamic quality. With the floral form, spiraling movement, and transforming colors, the concept of growth is created as a symbolic representation of the mission and role of the health care facility not just in treating aliments, but is sustaining the vitality of life.
What We Do

With their organization and experience the studio offers the following services to architects/ designers, private clients, developers, public art agencies, and artists:
Design - original and collaborative.
Fabrication/Installation of projects designed by the studio as well those created by others.
Engineering of glass systems.
Consultation for architectural glass art projects.
Administration of projects designed by the studio as well as by others.
The studio is led by Ursula Kaiser Vourvoulis, President, who has more than 25 years experience in senior glass studio positions and Kenneth von Roenn, Director of Design, who has more than 50 years of experience as an architectural glass art designer, a studio owner, an architect ( M. Arch., Yale U. ) as well as a principal of an architectural firm.
The foundation of the studio is built upon the principles of collaboration, within the studio organization as well as with clients, architects/designers, fabricators/suppliers and artists, and public art agencies.
In all of its work the primary objective is for the harmonious integration of glass art with architecture with the purpose of making environments more interesting, meaningful and ultimately more memorable. The process of integration also extends to the process of coordinating the glass art within the planning and construction of architecture.
