Window of the Week: Hollyhock

Created as a showroom piece in 2013, this Hollyhock window was inspired by an 1893 painting by John LaFarge. The impressionistic coloration highlights the deep red hollyhocks in full bloom. This 24" x 36" window showcases a variety of glasses, including ring mottled, streaky, rippled, and fracture/streamer. Polished quartz pebbles add dimension to the insets in the upper corners. This window is now in a local private collection.
