There is just so much fabulous examples of glass in public places that this thread is dedicated to sharing those examples!

To ensure we don't violate any copywrite laws and are totally on the up and up, we have a few rules to follow.....

RULES

1.  The examples must use glass as the major component of the piece of art.

2.  The art MUST be in a public place.

3.  The photos must be your own photos. You CANNOT just take a photo from the web and post it.

4.  Please do not link to a web page. Links go down and change then we can't see the fab art!  Smiley

5.  You MUST give credit to the artist or if the artist is unknown (e.g. the Florida Old Capitol Dome) then credit the location.

It is my hope that this thread can serve as an inspiration for all of us that are glass obsessed!

I'm going out and taking some photos for this thread this week. There are some incredible stain glass works on the FSU campus.

Do you consider churches / temples as "public"?

I can't take a picture because the glass is in San Antonio, Texas, and I am in Florida, but the San Antonio Public Library has an amazing Chihuly piece.

One of my favorites is the chapel in the White Tower at the Tower of London. Here's a picture of one of the windows:



And here's a close-up of the bottom artwork panel:

That's cool! Is it painted?  I'm not getting a clear idea of how you do that with glass and have it hold up over time.  Painted and sandwiched between two layers of glass?

When I went to DC in 8th grade, there were some awesome rose windows in the National Cathedral. I'll see what I can do about digging up one of my awful pics of them (hey, I was 13), but in the meantime, there are pictures at their website: http://www.cathedral.org/cathedral/discover/rose/wrose.shtml  There are other stained glass windows in the gallery as well (under the "Discover" heading).

By the way, there's some wonderful pictures of stained glass on wikipedia's stained glass page: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stained_glass
