I’ve lived in my house for 20 years and for 20 years I have had bland ol’ stairs. For a long time I’ve toyed with various ideas to dress them up and since I work primarily in fused glass, that’s what I longed to use for the stair risers. However, the prospect of foot traffic and heavy appliances potentially cracking any glass art that I put on those risers dimmed my hopes. Then came my GF Pyretta and this concept came to me! I used alcohol inks on photo paper to achieve this look which is nod to the gorgeous sugar maple right outside this front door.
This used to be a relatively dim area, but is really bright now! Next project is the lower stairs which are really dark.
