For this project, I was tasked with designing an overlay design that could be clad over the existing ceiling beams. We cut and bent steel sheets to cover the existing ceiling and beams. Once the metal was properly fitted, we overlaid thousands of pieces of lapis lazuli, white marble, jasper and tiger’s eye to make the intricate zodiac design. I was also asked to design a supporting chandelier structure to attach hundreds of blown glass ornaments made by the late glass artist Dale Chihuly. The chandelier structure is 20 feet in diameter.
