Etched Glass Veterans Memorial Designed for the National Cemetery of the Pacific
This etched glass veterans memorial was designed and fabricated for installation at the National Cemetery of the Pacific on the island of Oahu in the Hawaiian Islands. The memorial consists of etched photographs of the 33 Medal of Honor recipients who are buried there. There are 4 large warm bronze panels standing of of a metal framework.
The overall size of the piece is 8 feet tall by 8 feet wide. Along with the 33 etched photos are the 3 Medal on Honor Medals for the Army, Navy and Air Force etched onto the large top bronze glass panel.
The setting for the Memorial and cemetery is really impressive. The grounds are in the bowl formed out of the top a volcano right on the outskirts of Honolulu itself. The site looks down on the Pacific Ocean, the city of Honolulu and Pearl Harbor. It was really an honor and a privilege to be given the commission on this project. I am a combat disabled veteran and it was a very emotional project for me, especially on the tour of the entire grounds we were given by the director. I urge anyone who goes to Honolulu to visit this incredible National treasure.
This project was a collaboration between myself at Art Glass and Metal Studios and Experience Glass Studios. We have worked on many projects together over the years and do amazing seamless projects together utilizing both our talents.
