Polsky Window


A total of 15 windows were made to augment the design of the art gallery owner Maya Polsky’s North Shore home. These glass panels are a good example of combining sandblasted glass with stained glass. The sandblasted insets add another layer of subtle details that would be much more labor intensive and costly if done in individual pieces of cut glass. Sandblasting of a single window pane, shower doors, and mirrors can also be produced. The process utilizes a resist masking that is laid over the glass and then hand cut so either the foreground or background is peeled away to expose the glass to the sandblasting.
