Sales and commissions of my work began slowly as word of mouth. As I am retired now and living on the Oregon coast I can devote more time to making stained glass windows. Of course, I still need time to travel, play golf, enjoy my grandchildren, and go fishing and crabing!
If there is something you like in my shop but need it in a different size, please let me know and I will be happy to discuss the project and quote a price. Or, if you have an idea for a window I'd be happy to work with you to produce one.
Thanks again for your interest in my work.
