Sean Hennessey Glass For Steel Plate Plate, the new bar in the “hot” Brookland section of Washington, DC has opened. One of the trendy gastropub’s artistic flourishes is the cast glass entry – made by WGS Resident Artist Sean Hennessey. Sean (and his company Scenic Artisans, LLC) has been recently completing a number of site‑specific art and design commissions for architectural artwork in a variety of media for places that had a need to create a sophisticated and highly engaging artwork. entry
