Art Studio Overview:

Forms and colors are rooted in history and place. A base of gray slate relates to the “black swamp” that was drained by settlers of Toledo. A matte silver finish in stainless steel honors the Grey Nuns who selflessly cared for early Toledo residents, and a bold yellow interior is inspired by the Marguerite daisy. Toledo’s glass-making heritage is evoked by silhouettes suggesting vessels while other ever-changing shapes suggest petal forms. The patterns on the form are derived from the surrounding neighborhood building footprints and celebrate the community creating a colorful ever changing figure/ground play of light and shadow.
