Some years ago, I took a Stained Glass course at a regional junior college for a little personal therapy. I did a few projects utilizing lead came construction and a chandelier using copper foil. I throughly enjoyed the experience. Shortly after that exercise I put a second story addition atop my garage and family room - half of the space was dedicated for a studio. Being fully employed at the time, I couldn't seem to get back into the stained glass mode. After retiring I had trouble acclimating to my new life. While struggling a couple more years, I rediscovered my interest in stained glass and its been a very satifying hobby ever since.
I've chosen to work exclusively with lead came construction rather than copper foil. Generally I use the small 1/8th inch sized lead, which allows for more detail and a finer finished look. The construction includes a zinc or copper channel perimeter. Square or rectangle pieces can be framed in wood for hanging purposes.
Round or oval shaped stained glass works are done by forming the zinc or copper perimeter channel's shape and size before construction begins. Hangers are built into the zinc or copper channel.
The stained glass design and construction is done in my home studio. My studio has vaulted ceilings and a lot of natural light, with windows facing east, south and west. Other than the custom pieces made for my home, the pieces on the web site are for sale. The truth is that I'm exhausting hanging space in the studio.
Although I'll continue to build and add new items to this web site, I'm also interested in designing and building custom pieces for you. Subject, size, color and price can be discussed via email or phone. I can keep you abreast of a project using photos via email. Although the cost of glass can vary a lot, the primary factors determining the price of a finished piece is its size and the number of glass pieces it contains. You will notice below in the "Status' column those items that are for sale. The other items are either sold or are for display as examples of my work. The price column, in that case, is an approximate amount for a similar piece.
For commissioned pieces, the price column does not reflect additional costs for framing and installation. Likewise, I must pass on crating and shipping cost as required. In the continental US these cost are about $50 to $100 depending upon the size/weight of the item.
