STAINED GLASS

Coloring glass is complex and a science within itself. Stained glass gets its name from the stain that was added to clear glass in the old days to give it color. Silver nitrate made the glass yellow, cobalt produced blue, ferrous oxide made brown and yellow, iron oxide produced green, and copper in a smoky kiln made red. Those pre-nineteenth century techniques have long passed, but remnants of the past art and craft can be traced in old buildings, mainly churches, cathedrals and as fashionable additions to residences all over Europe.

My creations of different glass products range from small angel broaches, to picture frames, mirrors, thermometers to larger window hangings and structural pieces, both traditional and/or contemporary in design and technique. You can find my work year round at:


 
I also appear each year at a few select art and craft events.
