I was commissioned to make two reverse-glass artworks for a new Hotel Indigo premises located in Aldgate.

For the first piece the client wanted to reference the rich history of London's East End, so I chose to remake a shop fascia sign for an old Jewish-run tailors that operated in the Aldgate in the late 19th Century. You can see a film here showing all the stages that went into creating that piece. 

For the second work I was asked to make a triptych to spell out a three word saying of my choice. 'Take It Slow' was designed to speak to the hotel's fast paced business clientel, injecting a calming message to the reception area of the hotel.
