About

Being a Stained Glass Artist Combines Many Skills

I've always loved working in mixed media, using different materials together to make a finished work of art. Concentrating in stained glass allows me to sometimes mix those different materials together, whether it be glass, paper, metal, beads, or stones.

And stained glass not only allows me to use materials other than glass, it also requires many skills working together toward the finished art. Drafting, drawing, composition, painting, all need to come together. From the initial planning of a project, to the brush application of a patina finish, so many skills are necessary to make a quality piece of art.

In many projects, I have a definite plan designed and the outcome is already visualized. But if I'm focused on just exploring combining different materials, shapes, or textures, then sometimes the end product surprises me. I like being able to work both within a framework as well as having the freedom to play and allow the work to frame itself through the process.
