|Arthur Stern Studios also produces sculpture in wood, metal and glass in formats not traditionally associated with the medium. The bas relief wood-and-glass sculptures work with reflected light, while the free-standing sculptures utilize the transmitted light qualities of art glass.
"Three Figures" (15' x 8' x 5")
This lobby wall piece uses leaded glass and zolotoned wood. The three 18-feet-tall bas-relief figures are rendered in iridescent, mirrored, and opaque glass chosen for its reflective light characteristics. Viewers descending the staircase see quietly shimmering highlights as their vantage point changes.

|Sculpture with Walnut Cross
Clayton Valley Presbyterian, Clayton, CA
Incorporating a gilded glass mosaic, this sculpture functions as a sound-diffusing screen
|In 1983, Arthur Stern created a series of free-standing zigzag sculptures and screens for a one-man show at the Bank of America World Headquarters Gallery in San Francisco. The sculptural screens are actually flat panels that create an illusion of three dimensions.
