“Smithfield Bridge Alive“, an original stained glass piece completed October, 2014; signed and dated
A long-time icon of Pittsburgh, the Smithfield Bridge was a triumph of innovative design when built in 1883, erected with locally-sourced open hearth steel and wrought iron. Nick-named ‘the kissing fish bridge”, it crossed the Monongahela River connecting the immigrant neighborhoods of the South Side with Downtown.
This abstract stained glass piece exemplifies the important role man-created, architecturally functional structures unexpectedly assume to connect communities by becoming an integral part of the fabric that integrates and sustains people’s lives in urban settings.
