Uplifting Art in Hotel Elevators
The glass walls of the elevator cabs at the new Elser Hotel & Residences were made using our Dip-Tech ceramic printer. Typically, ceramic printers are utilized for the ease of creating any pattern with basic whites and blacks without the need for making new silkscreens. However, over the years I have been able to extend the color range of the Dip-Tech, making it possible to use the longevity and durability of ceramic inks in certain art projects.
I worked closely with the artist, Andrew Antonaccio, who created these designs. This collaboration allowed us to shift certain colors into the color range of our printer as well as simplify certain textures and effects for physical print. Using custom-made color palettes, I was able to hand-key in individual colors by manually layering colors such as Red, Blue, Green, Black, etc. to create a consistent color value.
During the three-month project, I was able to use the full spectrum of inks available in Dip-Tech. We used a white opaque interlayer to provide the base, meaning the printer did not have to use the white color on anything other than lightening specific colors like soft blues and oranges.
I am very proud of what we were able to achieve with the collaboration with the artist and our customer, Lift Customs. With clean lines of communication, and flexibility to focus on art, we are able to create striking and visual art designs, like no other glass fabricator.
