    HAPPY to Be Back In the World of Stained Glass

    I learned Stained Glass around 1989 and made quite a few pieces, most of them, given away as gifts.  During that time I made a Red Glass Cardinal Window Hanging, Bluebird Fan Lamp, Sunset Circle, Various Hanging Pieces, Large Dining Room Seafood Lamp, etc. Deciding that I...

    Wish I Had the Space For a Workshop

    Ever since I took a class where I did a small stained glass piece, I have a love for it.  Unfortunately the only time I get to play around with it, is when one of my friends invites me over to play in her workshop.  I am so jealous! I have only done small things, but...
