Over Houston

Location: Along the People Movers, Connector Bridge, William P. Hobby Airport

Over Houston consists of six 12 X 20 foot art glass pieces composed of imagery Gordon Huether abstracted from aerial photographs of Houston and the surrounding region taken by artist, Gordon Huether from a small aircraft. As he expressed, “…When traveling by air, I have often been amazed by the different patterns and colors formed both naturally and by man’s manipulation.

Rows of crops, natural grasslands, and cars on a highway all become part of the view surrounding us, which is revealed only when viewed from above.”
Over Houston by Gordon Huether
Art glass techniques of etching, fusing, laminating and painting all were used to fabricate the 48 individual panels of Over Houston.

About the Artist

Gordon Huether was born in Rochester, NY in 1959, to German immigrant parents. He learned art composition and appreciation at an early age from his father. In the course of his initial artistic explorations Huether resolved to create a lasting impact on the world around him through the creation of large-scale works of art. His works reflect the intellectual and emotional message that one can deliver through an artistic creation, communicating a story, not just creating objects of beauty. With a mission to create site-specific art installations Gordon Huether works in his Napa, California studio, founded in 1987.
