Mike McIntyre's Profile
My first stained glass pieces were crafted more than 30 years ago...and then life interfered. Now that the children are almost out of the house (though I wish they would never leave) and I have sold or closed my other businesses, I have time to get back to one of my life's true pleasures: creating works of art in glass.
I love working with glass. The luminosity of a stained glass piece provides a vibrant energy and yet calming ambiance to any space in which it is displayed. Yet, unlike most other works of art, as the day moves through it daily light cycle, stained glass will respond to those changing conditions, as if choreographed perfectly by Nature herself.
As an artist, I find that even in the the simplest of patterns, I can embellish this energy dance through my selection and combination or glass colors, textures and opacity…
