About

"The Wonderful Enchantment of Hand-Painted Ornaments and Other Little Works of Art"

My story starts along time ago, as I've been a working Glass Artist for about 45 years ( this makes me sound OLD, but I'm YOUNG at heart!) I've painted many things on glass lamps, vases, ect. I've painted a lot of the Churches and homes in my area on glass over the years. For this type of glass painting, I used a Glass Enamel. The glass was then fired at around 1500 degrees, which made the paint permanent. One of my favorite things to paint, have been my Ornaments. People love them and they are so well received. They make wonderful gifts and can be inscribed at no extra charge. To me, there's something magical about the Ornaments, and many have become treasured keepsakes over the years. I paint these with an acrylic paint, which is my favorite paint to work with. On my glass and pottery pieces I use an acrylic enamel, which is a low-firing paint for glass. Items painted with this should be hand washed. Come enjoy browsing in my shop and remember, I do a lot of custom work so if you'd like something special, just let me know.
