The Legacy Project at the Daniel Pruitt Studios
Cleveland has a great deal of manufacturing that has always fascinated me, so I created The Legacy Project. I work with local business owners to celebrate their success with a portfolio of fused glass images, which are usually displayed in their lobby or boardroom. After an interview with the owner I take a series of photographs focusing on the products, environment and employees that tells a unique story about the company. The images are screen-printed with powder frits onto glass, fused in the kiln and matted and framed for final presentation.
It is a fascinating experience. I learn first hand about the workings of successful companies, while producing a portfolio of work that celebrates the accomplishments of the company, it’s employees and it’s connection to the community.
The Screw Factory offers a facility for an artist that provides large freight elevators, 24-hour security and a helpful staff. For example, when I installed my new 1000 lb 6’x 20”fusing kiln, it was drop shipped to one of our loading docks, brought up to my second floor studio with a tow motor and installed and leveled by two of our Factory workers.
I have been at the Factory for four and a half years. Because of the facilities and staff, I cannot think of being anywhere else.
