Idea to Dream 

When Paul Manno of Gensler Architecture group approached Carlyn about a design the Haynes and Boone Firm law firm, Carlyn had many initial ideas.  She came away from their conversation with the idea of the science around law; the ideas as well as the reflections of one’s self and one’s values in their own work.  She imagined the joy of supporting one’s rights and freedoms. 

Carlyn presented the idea of blue bubbles, some reflecting with a mirror finish, growing as they get higher, reflecting the sky and collectively creating a mass of color.  Each shape is hand blown and hand pressed to create organic growing forms.  The gradation of the colors, sizes, and shapes become larger and deeper as the piece ascends up the staircase.
