Hi all. I was invited to show some work at the Artist’s Guild Gallery of Greenville (SC), but they had no 3-D display areas. They had some significant restrictions, so I decided that a glass display would be best, if I could find a way to execute it without spending an arm and a leg. I found a local guy that makes and sell displays, and he had this nice tempered glass and connectors for building custom units. I bought enough parts, and then built a custom wood base out of ambrosia maple, rounded and routed to fit the glass for a sturdy support. It works well in the gallery, because the glass does not overpower or block anything on the walls, but is also kind of classy looking (at least I think so, anyway). It also comes completely apart for easy relocation.
