To welcome Dean Weishar to campus last summer, Master Craftsman Studio created a cast glass seal for the Dean’s office. This glass version of our university seal measures 18 inches by 2.5 inches and is surrounded with a painted wood frame. At 18 inches, this is the largest one we’ve produced. This piece incorporates a backing of dichroic glass, which has a very reflective quality and gives the piece its gold color. As you view this work from different perspectives, the colors shift as the light moves and changes.
Over the years, we have created the FSU Seal in many media, including bronze, granite and delicate paper castings. With Kenneth von Roenn arriving this summer along with Dean Weishar, we felt creating the seal in glass was only fitting.
