San Francisco Portola Library

“California Wildflowers” 2009
When I met with the people in the Portola Neighborhood, the people who came to the library meetings were seniors. They remembered the now extremely diverse neighborhood back in the day when there were many plant nurseries it being near the flower mart. I decided to represent and stylize 20 natural California wildflowers.

The flowers are made from kiln casting glass powders in a mold onto a glass sheet. The vertical 5 panel glass screens are installed onto poles. The screens rotate and have locking positions so the librarian can adjust the bright sunlight that comes into the front magazine reading room.
