Auberge Pods This installation of blown glass and steel blends into the contours of a garden pond at Auberge
dul Soliel Resort in Napa Ca. Eleven glass orbs are suspended by sinewy metal rod stems
emerging from the water. Some pods have multiple glass orbs and stand as high as 13 feet tall.
The purple and lavender colors were pulled from the surrounding flowers as a means to integrate
the piece into the space.
Freeway Pods 1999
Glass blown the same color as the central freeway was blown into metal armatures then hung
from the metal stems beneath the San Francisco Central Freeway. There were four installations
total. The pods hung there until the California Dept. of Transportation removed them.
Yerba Buena Pods
This piece was a temporary installation in the Papyrus Pond at the Yerba Buena Center for the
Arts in San Francisco, 2000. These blown glass and steel forms sprout from rigid metal rods
attached to a concrete mosaic base submerge in the water. The cluster of red glass bubbles
were meant to accent the green papyrus plants. The black glass bound by steel, plays into
the surrounding modern architecture. The red pods stand approximately 7 ft tall while the small
black pod barely hovers above the water line and the tall black pod reaches out beyond the pond
towards the SF MOMA in the back ground.
