Artistic expressions in metal and glass (and more!)

Back in 2005, I finally walked through the door of the local stained glass shop, determined to take some classes after seeing them advertised for several years. Not only was a new hobby born, but a growing passion. In the years since, I have created at workshop at home so that I can develop patterns and make pieces at any time, now full time!

In late 2012, I was asked to make a cardinal for a friend’s mom for the holidays. Rather than use one of the many free patterns on line, I decided to create my own from a photo I had taken of a cardinal at my house. Posted the finished glass on Facebook, and wound up with a bunch of orders from people for Christmas. That has inspired me to take my glass making to the next level, resulting in more than 70 of my own patterns by 2021, and still growing.

I primarily make suncatcher and ornament sized pieces. While I can make boxes, business card holders, and nightlights, I am not presently equipped for lamps or larger panels. My workspace simply is not big enough to do those. If you have a photo you want converted into glass, or a special project in mind, I will be quite happy to talk about what I can do for you.

In 2016, I also began learning chainmail. It's been a remarkable journey to continue to learn the many ways that can be done, and find ways to incorporate it into my glasswork, making truly unique pieces to offer.

Why Singing Whale as a business name? I love whales, and I love music. The magic of both inspire me to find my own creations of art for others to enjoy.

Thanks for stopping by!

    I've been making stained glass since 2005. I employ the copper foil method and work very hard to ensure a high quality to all finished pieces. Am constantly working on new patterns and pieces, so please keep looking! Profile photo by Chris Chin.
