Hot Flash Anny's is a name I chose for a shop I owned for 20 years in Southwest Harbor, ME. HFA was a Stained Glass Restoration and Commission Studio- Gallery. I restored many Tiffany windows as well as Lafarge and Heaton Butler and Baines to name-drop a few. ‘Hot Flashing’ by the way is the process of putting an iridizing solution over hot glass to give it an changing multi colored refraction. After losing my business to a bait and switch, I had no creative outlet.
God works in mysterious ways doesn't He? I was involved in a traffic accident where a garbage truck hit me and I had a bit of brain damage.

Years ago I was asked to make a stained glass window that had the words of another window my customer had seen in a 12th century church. 'Lumin umbra Dei' - Light is the Shadow of God-That small sentence struck me so profoundly it shook my soul on many levels.
I realized that through the sparkle of stained glass, which I had always through Restoration tried to renew, and my own work; I had always been looking for, and trying to share that - ' Light '.
I hope you enjoy my little Crow Creations! I hope you will always look for the Light in your life. And with each piece I make is a hope that the sparkle warms your soul. When you find something good pass it on! We women do that a lot don't we.
