On September 11, 2002, the New York City Fire Museum completed installation of a permanent exhibit to honor the 343 firefighters who lost their lives at the World Trade Center one year earlier. A poem, "If They Could Speak," written by New York-based interior designer Roseanne Pellicane, was chosen as the keynote for this exhibit. The poem was to be etched in 1/2"-thick glass and serve as the opening statement for the memorial. To illuminate this important piece, the designer turned to Glass Illuminations, which met all her criteria. "It had to look beautiful, be functional, and arrive on time. Glass Illuminations was the only company to do all that."
Scott Hunter, director of design for Glass Illuminations, produced a work of art to be admired by future generations. He personally oversaw each phase of fabrication in California, then traveled to New York for the final installation. "I anticipated something special but the completed piece exceeded my expectations. It couldn't have been any better," stated Ms. Pellicane.
Glass Illuminations is exclusively marketed by KATIE Group, Inc. and its organization of independent sales representatives throughout the country.
