Her topographical design of the Grand River as it meanders about it flows through each of the four seasons.


To bring the restoration of the river indoors cascading down three floors, flowing through all four seasons of the year.


Involved Deanna working with the company and their commitment to the environment, especially the grand river restoration. Deanna designs with flat glass which is cut, detail of smaller pieces of glass and frit to create the rock and flow of the river.
