Stained Glass Panels
Most of the items in the galleries have already sold, but if you see something you want, please inquire about a custom order.
Below is a triskele that was custom designed for a wedding in June 2014. It measures 29" in diameter. The pressed glass lion in the center is lightly iridized and one of a kind, just like the beautiful couple getting married!
I'm always looking for new and weird things to use in my art. I came across this bike sprocket, and the negative space called to me. I quickly sketched up this flower and began working on it. I love the final result and now I'm on the lookout for sprockets, gears, chain rings - anything with an interesting open space to fill with glass!
I have always loved the beauty of a snow-covered winter day. Something about the snow is magic to me. The quiet, blanketed Earth and the tiny ice crystals drifting down to us from the heavens. They sparkle rainbow colors in the sun, and each flake is different ... every one a work of art by the Divine. I've read several books on the science of snowflakes, and I can't get enough of the high resolution macro photographs that have been published and made available online of snowflakes. My work with bevels, jewels, and glass nuggets is my way of expressing the beauty I see in each snowfall.
Antique and Art Glass Plate Panels
To highlight the beauty of these antique and contemporary glass plates, I've set them in an open panel, framed with twisted lead. The plates are highlighted by a variety of hand spun roundels, nuggets, beveled jewels, prisms, and metal filigrees. I have always admired the artistry in these plates, and find that they look their best hanging in the sun. I affectionately call these my "swirly panels" and am always on the lookout for beautiful plates to highlight in this medium. These panels range in diameter from 11 to 15 inches.
Various Stained Glass Panels
A good number of the panels I make are commissioned, they're made to express a sentiment from my customer to their intended recipient. It could be a vow of marriage, an expression of love to a spouse or child, or a demonstration of gratitude. I'm always happy to help someone send a lasting message through glass.
