A Stained Glass Cabin Hidden in the Woods by Neile Cooper 

Stained glass artist and jeweler Neile Cooper had a vision for a sanctuary: a small cabin behind her home in Mohawk, New Jersey that would feature her glass designs on every available surface. The result is Glass Cabin, a structure built almost entirely from repurposed window frames and lumber that features dozens of panels of her stained glass work, depicting flowers, birds, butterflies, mushrooms and other scenes from nature. Cooper explores many of these same motifs in her popular jewelry designs. You can see more photos of Glass Cabin on Instagram. (via This Isn’t Happiness)

Bespoke Stained Glass Succulents by Lesley Green

Influenced by elements of both architecture and illustration, artist Lesley Green (owner of Bespoke Glass) channels modern design while working with stained glass and glass tile. Her works have traditionally been quite geometric, however recently she has focused on more organic shapes, like in her latest series of succulent-based sculptures. These stained glass works mirror different types of cacti and agave plants, refracting beautiful light patterns through their green-tinted forms.

“I want to push the technical boundaries of stained glass, and love the challenge of figuring out how to solve problems, such as creating open spaces in a pattern,” said Green in an interview with Etsy. “Pattern and color are very important to me. I’m most often inspired by textiles in that respect.”

You can see more of her cacti creations and other glass tiles works on her Instagram and Etsy shop. (via So Super Awesome)

DUMBO Arts Festival

As part of this year’s DUMBO Arts Festival, sculptor Tom Fruin installed his famous plexiglass house, Kolonihavehus, in Brooklyn Bridge Park. The multi-colored house was lit from inside and temporarily inhabited by performance duo CoreAct who engaged in a collaborative physical performance that is described here by DUMBO:

The colorful glass house is inhabited by two performers, who portray everyday dilemmas and lifestyle paradoxes in a subtle manner. They have lost the ability to meaningfully discriminate, and are trapped in a long chain of procrastination, mirroring our current social patterns.

You might also recognize Fruin’s other renowned sculpture in DUMBO, Watertower. (via My Modern Met)
