CLOCKTOWER OFFICE in the WRIGLEY BUILDING 400-410 N. Michigan Ave, 1920-1924 - Spanish Colonial Revival and French Renaissance, Architects, Graham, Anderson, Probst & White

Opal Glass worked in conjunction with Dirk Dennison and his team of architects to produce numerous sets of windows for the Clock Tower office of the Wrigley Building. It was an honor for Sharon to design 4 of the panels in the style of Edgar Miller (click on link), an amazing artist whom Sharon knew personally.

Edgar is deservedly receiving more attention for his amazing hand made homes that were unknown to most. He was an incredibly diverse artist working in many mediums, including innovative glass designs, murals, wood carvings, ceramics, sculptures, and paintings The book Edgar Miller and his Handmade Home: Chicago’s Forgotten Renaissance Man has helped widen his recognition, as has the Edgar Miller Legacy 501c3 nonprofit dedicated to preserving and educating the public about Miller's incredibly body of work. Spearheading this initiative is the organization's Executive Director, Zac Bleicher, who has who has organized series of lectures with prominent scholars, tours of the homes and studios, artists in residence programs initiatives and fundraisers. Another collaboration was with Art on Sedgewick (click on link), a nonprofit doing wonderful work in Old Town. Sharon taught workshops to children who had visited the stunning Glasner Studio as well as workshops sessions for the community at the Sedgewick art center.
