Best glass ass-rests

In 2015, she received the Individual Artist Grant from ACHC as well as the Carolyn Heller Visual Arts Award to help fund her terrazzo bench project for the Green ARTery Perimeter Trail. These shaped concrete benches will have handmade art glass embedded into the surface for colorful texture. Part functional, part sculpture, three benches have been plotted out for Patterson Park, Ignacio Haya Linear Park, and Circle Park, and are slated for a fall installation. gottglass.com. —Caitlin Albritton
