About

Most everyone who has seen the windows of some of the churches in our world has been inspired by the color and the artistic detail that the artist used to tell his story.

When I retired from teaching and my work at a portrait studio with my parents,I decided to take up the glass craft that my father taught me over 20 years ago. Working with glass is an exciting craft that allows the full use of all the creative juices. Glass comes in hundreds of colors and textures.

I use the same method that Tiffany used in most of his work...the copper foil and solder method. After the piece is assembled with solder, I use patina (either copper, black or pewter).The piece is then polished and sent to you to enjoy.

One of the most enjoyable benefits of glass crafting is making beautiful glass boxes…

One of the most enjoyable benefits of glass crafting is making beautiful glass boxes...all sizes and shapes, decorated as I please. They are usually one of a kind, but I can repeat the design as often as you like. The designs are infinite. They make great bridesmaids gifts, and a lovely place to put the rings for the ring bearer to carry..
When I find a good way to ship small glass lamps, I will be making those as well.

My work is sold, mainly, through my Etsy site, however, I also sell my work at a major Art event here in North Georgia. As a member of the Sawnee Artists Association, I join a group of fantastic artists from every field. An inspiration to me.

Several years ago we made a major change in our lives and moved to North Georgia from Valley Forge, PA. We tired of the cold winters and decided to go to a warmer climate...only a little snow which can be swept away in the morning.

Please stop by the shop and browse through the glass items on display. As soon as everything is unpacked I'll be adding some new items for your pleasure.
