About

Vibrantly Colored Custom Screen with Inset Vintage Higgins Glass Rondelays. This piece looks incredible when the light is shining through the glass Rondelays. It is a versatile size and could be used as a screen, room divider or partition, or even as a unigue headboard. It exhibits outstanding hand craftsmanship, and is meticulously finished on both sides, with no visible seams on the back side where the glass Rondelays were inset. Michael and Frances Higgins, who created the circa 1960's glass Rondelays used in this screen, met at the Chicago Institute of Design, and were pioneers in the rediscovery and refinement of the ancient art of glass fusing. Because it is so labor-intensive, fusing had, by the mid-twentieth century, been all but abandoned in favor of glass blowing. Essentially, fusing is the creation of a “glass sandwich”, which creates wonderful texture and color complexity. Each screen panel is 16"W. Each glass rondelay measures 5" diameter.
