Glass Inspired By Nature

Wright was inspired by nature.  My stained glass work was also inspired by nature. Not by the beauty of nature but rather by its destructive force.

When a leaded glass window in my home was damaged in a wind storm I decided it was time to learn the craft of stained glass work.   I wanted to replace the window and found out how expensive custom stained glass windows could be.

Fortunately, my father had taken up stained glass as a hobby at one point in his life.  A short trip to my Dad’s workshop later and I had all the tools I needed to start a new hobby of my own.

Handcrafted Gifts

While I’m happy to not have the misfortune to be regularly replacing windows in my home, I still felt like I needed the opportunity to practices and hone my glass skills.

The obvious answer was to just start making stuff.  And that I did.  Currently, you’ll find some of my unique handmade gifts availabe on Etsy.  Check out my Etsy store to see my latest pieces.
