The U.S. Marine Corps Seal Carved in Glass by Sans Soucie
Sans Soucie Art Glass Studios was recently selected to carve the United States Marine Corps seal, for installation inside the Officers Club at the U.S. Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center in Twentynine Palms, California.
The 36″ diameter seal is deep carved on the front side of a 1/2″ thick clear, tempered glass panel. The panel is installed as a wall art piece, using stand-off posts and is spot lit from the ceiling.
The panel was delivered and installed by Sans Soucie glaziers in July 2009 and is now proudly on display inside the officers club.

Twentynine Palms has a reputation within the Marine Corps for its relative desolation and isolation, due to the harsh desert climate and the remote nature of the base.
