In her more than 30 years as an artist, Anne-Elizabeth Sobieski has created countless masterpieces. But nothing has sparked more excitement than the collection she recently created on a series of glass windows, commissioned as a civic work by the Los Angeles County Department of Arts and Culture. “I had never painted on glass before but I can use my own drawing underneath as a guide. It’s a really forgiving process,” said Sobieski, demonstrating the process. The windows won’t be going up in a museum or gallery. They were specially designed by Sobieski for Fire Station 104, currently under construction in Santa Clarita. The theme, of course, was fire. To create the windows, Sobieski was given the chance to learn a new artistic technique called glass fusing.
