Art, home decor, and jewelry made from lead-free stained glass

My process involves cutting individual pieces of glass with a hand glass cutter or ring saw and grinding each piece smooth with an electric grinder.
From there, the process diverges depending on whether a Tiffany style piece or a mosaic is being made. In Tiffany style, each piece of glass has its edges wrapped in foil and then attached to each other with solder.
For the mosaics, unfoiled glass pieces are glued to a sheet of clear glass to create the design. Then additional small shards are added to fill in the background. Finally the piece is grouted within the frame to clearly define the elements of the image and physically strengthen the artwork.

    I'm a former computer programmer and craft supply business owner. For a long time, I had a desire to make stained glass — a desire that was stuck somewhere in the back of my head. In 2017 I finally realized that wish and here’s the result!
