SUNTRACKER  WINDOWS
The Suntracker Series are windows that project an image and color into the space. Optically clear colored glass and prismatic objects combine to create patterns that change through the course of the day or season.


SUNTRACKER SKYLIGHT WINDOW
SUNTRACKER SKYLIGHT WINDOW
As with all the windows in the Suntracker Series, the projected image is as important as the pleasing design of the window. The use of prismatic objects and glass as well as dichroic and lightly textured glass allows the image to project onto the wall instead of dispersing the light.

The window is set in a hinged steel frame for easy removal and cleaning. A two-inch perimeter space allows for air circulation when the motorized skylight is opened.

FOUR SEASONS SUNTRACKER WINDOW
FOUR SEASONS SUNTRACKER WINDOW
This Suntracker window is inspired by a four season theme Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall from left to right in the image. The window is installed in a home in Somerville, MA not far from the train tracks running through the city. There are three train signal lenses installed in the window, and the glasses used are highly prismatic. The window projects and Impressionistic image on the wall which varies greatly depending on time of day or season.

ANTIQUE PRISMATIC SUNTRACKER WINDOW
ANTIQUE PRISMATIC SUNTRACKER WINDOW
This window is installed in an interior opening in a house in Charlestown, Massachusetts. The squares are antique prismatic tiles which were commonly installed in work spaces and above storefronts to bring light into the space. The tiles have changed color to a pale purple, the result of a reaction of the manganese in the glass to ultraviolet light.
BUNGALOW HOME PRISMATIC WINDOW
BUNGALOW HOME PRISMATIC WINDOW
The setting of this window offered a unique challenge to capturing light while presenting a pleasant visual design. The window is located above a top floor stairway. Instead of facing the natural light, the window is backed by the attic with a small window as a light source 10 feet away.

Prismatic and opal glasses were used to capture the light and present an even, lighted visual experience. The style of the window fits perfectly in its Bungalow home.
ORNAMENTAL SUNTRACKER WINDOW
ORNAMENTAL SUNTRACKER WINDOW
This ornamental window (one of a pair) was designed to obscure an unsightly roof adjacent to the offices of Saturn Asset Management in Boston. The design of the windows responds to the distinctive Art Deco ornamentation of the building. The tight ribbed prismatic glass and the faceted colored jewels cast a beautiful light pattern into the room in full sunlight.
30th ANNIVERSARY SUNTRACKER WINDOW
30th ANNIVERSARY SUNTRACKER WINDOW
An unusual challenge in this window. For their 30th anniversary this couple wanted 30 pieces in the piece. I really had to wrangle the design around but was pretty happy in the way it turned out.
FIRST SUNTRACKER WINDOW
FIRST SUNTRACKER WINDOW
This is the first commission window in the SUNTRACKER series. My idea was to not just think about what the window looked like but also what type of image it would project into the living space.

The projected image of the first SUNTRACKER window. I wanted the image to represent the red sun with a clock pendulum hanging from the sun and moving slowly across the floor over the course of the day. I also like the way the projected color of the dichroic glass is different than the color when looking at the window. The center blue stripe projects a rich magenta color which changes also depending on the angle of the sun in different seasons.
STUDIO SUNTRACKER WINDOW
STUDIO SUNTRACKER WINDOW
This is my newest SUNTRACKER window. It includes 12 scientific prisms that project overlapping rainbows into my former studio in Somerville.

All of the glass in the window is prismatic and dichroic and it also projects arcs of light and bands of color onto the floor and wall and the patterns move and change with the movement of the sun.

The band of color lengthens each day as the angle of the sun climbs. We hit 24 feet long today. I will publish another picture when we hit maximum length.

The image the new SUNTRACKER window shoots into my former studio in Somerville continues to evolve as the angle of the sun rises. February 28th the overlapping rainbows were 32 feet across the ceiling and it even spilled onto the front wall. I can't wait to see what it looks like by the end of March.
BARN SUNTRACKER WINDOW
BARN SUNTRACKER WINDOW
This 5' window was inspired by Amish barn decorations. The owner converted this old barn in Rumney NH into an Artspace for other artists to create and perform.

The projected image and the "rays" of light projecting out from the image. I actually had no idea what the projected image would look like when I designed and made the window. Only that it would be cool! The image is being modeled by Nancy Nicholson who was kind enough to help with the install.
