The pieces in this gallery are made with various kinds of rice paper or other translucent papers, and are adhered between two pieces of plexiglass or glass. They are meant to be mounted in or near a window, because they shine in natural light. Unlike stained glass, they are not completely see-through and therefore create wonderful shadows on the wall. A few of these pieces have hung in the windows of the Paper Umbrella on 13th Avenue in Regina, as well as various libraries and galleries.Currently, a couple of these piece are in the windows of Stones’ Throw Coffee Collective near University of Regina.
The plexiglass panels have some UV protection. Over a 5 year period, fading is usually minimal.
Commissions – I can imagine these pieces in a bathroom window, an entrance window, lighting up an otherwise non-descipt office corridor with a window at the end, or in public places like bus depots, schools, churches, anywhere people gather. If you have a particular space for a rice paper creation, please contact me. I can work with the size you need, and the images and colours that delight you. I can quote a price before beginning based on the size of the plexiglass, cost of screws and nuts, and approximate number of pieces inside.
