Glass creates an ethereal environment of light, colors, reflections, and organic movement. A hanging sculptural glass piece can elevate beauty into another realm. Wall pieces can bring curves, lines, color, and nature into any room.

The Experience

Carlyn Ray Designs Consultation and Planning  Image

Consultation and Planning

The first step is knowing the space. Plans, site visits, and/or photos are needed to make the art feel a part of the space. Carlyn and her team will provide sketches or renders of ideas. Understanding the overall budget or looking at the perfect design will drive possibilities. With the design, a color palette will be suggested and approved to make sure all visual elements are fully understood. All of these details will be captured in a contract.

Glassblowing and Assembly

From the sketches and renderings, Carlyn and the team design the metal and glass to blend together and support one another. If lighting is involved, all interfaces are understood and calibrations created for the full assembly to fit together. Carlyn and her team create the glass in the specific finish and color per contract and will then either invite you in for a color approval or send you photos with an update. With your approval, the team will continue to assemble all the metal, glass, and electrical components. Depending on the scale, a full mock-up may be approved in the studio before it is installed at your site.

Installation and Lighting

The pre-installation is normally done all in the studio to create a diagram template to follow, or a detailed guide is provided to meet specification requirements (lengths/ceiling placements). All parts are QC’d prior to going out to the site and the installation is just a step-by-step process of assembling the individual parts together. Electrical can be done simultaneously or before and after the installation, depending on the scope of the project. The celebration begins once all is illuminated and glowing!
