"THE BEACHES OF NEW YORK CITY" - Beach 60th Street, Far Rockaway Line, New York, USA

in collaboration with Simon Levenson

Client: MTA Arts for Transit
Architect: MTA New York City Transit
Photo credits: Peter Bartsch

Technique: Hand-painted coloured vitreous enamels on cast glass blocks

DESCRIPTION: My project focused on the two greatest assets of the location; the people and the beautiful New York beaches. The imagery captures families at play along the shoreline. I reflected on my own history growing up playing at nearby beaches.

Peters Studio is staffed with the most talented and capable people I have ever worked with, from the Peters family at the head of the organization to the skilled craftsmen who executed my project and the young people who are mixing pigments and working their way up. It was a pleasure to work in an environment with artisans who were both capable and humble. They are true masters of their craft.
