My newest transom design is a new version of my original “Moravian Star” transom. Here I used water glass for the star shapes, which created an almost metallic effect that I really ended up liking. I love how this detail below turned out! (Photos by Nichola Kinch)
I am excited to have Debra Ward’s Post & Lintel featured in the Exhibition Collection at Vox Populi Gallery. The exhibition has a fun theme- it brings together more than 60 works of art owned, loved, and hung in the homes of Vox Populi members and board members. I originally made Post & Lintel as site-specific piece for Debra’s front door window transom, and am curious to see how it works as a white-box gallery piece.
The opening is this friday, March 1st, 6-11pm if you’re interested in stopping by! Also, there are a few other events associated with the exhibition- The Potluck Art Swap sounds particularly intriguing! (see list below)

Before the holidays I did a really fun interview with Kara Angotti, a local Philadelphia Interior Designer.
Here’s a link to the blog piece she wrote about Marina Borker Stained Glass: We also taped a short video interview that is embedded below. Enjoy!
Here we added wooden framing and stained glass to an existing stairwell. We were interested in enclosing the space while still keeping it light-filled. A combination of hammered glass and water glass adds texture to a simple geometric weave pattern.
Hallway transom where we continued with an enlarged version of the same weaving pattern.
We also added water glass panels to cabinet doors in adjacent kitchen area.
