Artist Ellen Abbott just emailed me about a glass project in Houston, Texas recently completed by artists Liz Conces Spencer and Gene Hester.
Metamorphosis was commissioned by Houston Arts Alliance on behalf of Houston Public Library. It consists of two undulating mosaic panels on the exterior of the Patricio Flores Neighborhood Library.
According to the article in the Houston Examiner “…The brilliant shades of fused glass mounted onto curved metal substrates reflect the culture of the Second Ward and its citizens through the use of traditional imagery, such as serapes and flowers, combined with musical notes and books whose spines highlight the notions of the voice of the people, new ideas, community, attainment of knowledge and personal power.” Read more here.
Being a fan of underbellies, I am also hugely taken with the panels’ substrates.

Gene and Liz, Congratulations for bringing such great color and energy to reading!
Ellen, thanks for the heads up!
