Borun Windows


In this project a client generated idea of bamboo was inspired by a watercolor drawing that Sharon had happened to have done on site in the rain forests of Costa Rica. Created with the copper foil method the window utilizes almost entirely Chicago Art Glass and uses the opalescent swirls of this type of stained glass to a painterly effect. A tree branch weaves through vertical panels and relates to an antique carved Chinese screen in close proximity. The scale of the three panels truly creates the feeling of being surrounded by the tranquility of a stand of bamboo deep in the jungle. This adds a fertile and calming bit of nature to a downtown residence that abounds with magnificent urban views from every other window.
