This spring we installed one of the most beautiful domes we ever worked on. The stained glass dome Blue Lotus. The name was inspired by the pattern of the glass ceiling that reminds me mandala, by connection to a blooming lotus flower and by Asian roots of the client...

A year of work (design, planning, fabrication) resumed with this stained glass dome installation. A team of 5 supporting one artist. Thousands of glass pieces joined into stained glass dome ceiling fabric. 14. 5 feet / 4.5 meters in diameter. One ambitious and curious client.

Bright and shiny ... colored beveled glass acanthus border and crystal pale jewels are great accent highlights for a large domed skylight.  One of the most amazing elements used in this leaded glass skylight is  custom made hand beveled colored glass. Each piece of beveled glass has a color stretching of delicate elusive colors of neon (lilac), pink, straw and pale blue to expose a sole of glass: transparency, brightness, color, texture.

The team behind  worked really hard. First, glass was formed in our large computer controlled kiln in a few stages, all elements were programmed for CNC machine and water jet cut in our studio in Mississauga.

After cutting, it was sent to Europe, detained by Ukrainian customs due to uncertain artistic value of content. That caused a few months delay in our production schedule. After explaining customs officers about glass beveling process it was released reaching the beveling studio in Ukraine. Absolutely stunning, fantastic, complex, technically difficult and crazy beveling work done by talented Yuriy Sergeev
