During my time at Classic Glass, I was commisioned to meticulously recreate a precise version of Ruth Bowler's original pen and ink design. Three double-paneled pieces of glass were selected to build the glass triptych. The art was then printed on the front and back surfaces of each sandwiched panel excluding the front lobby surface. This functional approach provides a smooth front surface and protects the ink from curious fingers. White ink was printed as a transparency on the glass to successfully recreate the overlay effect of the original vellum substrate.
This project was part of a 2012 renovation of the University of Maryland's, Chincoteague Hall and now houses the offices of the Baha’i Chair for World Peace. As well as the university’s Sadat Chair for Peace and Development, and the George and Lisa Zakhem Kahlil Gibran Chair for Values and Peace.

Additionally, I was tasked with laying out twenty-eight uniquely sized acrylic plaques that line the hallways of Chincoteague Hall.
