The Four Elements

Item details

Pfizer and GBT Interiors commissioned April to conceptualize and create “The Four Elements: Air, Fire, Water, Earth,” a custom site-specific glass wall sculpture in four parts. This piece was commissioned for the Round Interaction Conference Room on their Ann Arbor campus.

One of April’s objectives in creating the sculpture was to enhance the work environment, yet not distract from the business process; to give impetus to creative thinking via visual stimulation, engaging the viewer back into the environment/discussion instead of removing them from it.

“I had never considered glass could capture so well the spirit of the four elements. We had faith in April Wagner’s talents and enjoy her creativity every time we enter this room.” - Dr. David Canter, senior vice president Pfizer Inc., global research and development.

Meet the Creator

I am a maker of objects. Since I was young I’ve always had a desire to make things with my hands. It’s visceral and primitive and fundamental. If you ask me as an artist why I make something, I’ll tell you I had to do it – I couldn’t not do it. It is as necessary to me as breathing. Each piece I create is a part of me brought to life and given to the viewer. Whether deemed successful or not, I continue creating."
