EPA and Art Glass

This has been a year of strife, upheaval, uncertainty and dismay, but I'm looking forward to the holidays and some time to reflect. With the presidential race claiming almost every headline, it’s been hard to think, let alone figure out the next steps. I am talking...

Studio News: 2016 SGAA Conference

I wrote this from a hotel room in Chicago. Yup, the windy city, and only a couple blocks from Lake Michigan. Why? Because I attended the annual Stained Glass Association of America’s conference – the SGAA for short - and Oh. My. Gosh. I listened to my colleagues give...

SGAA Conference 2015 – Portland

Stained Glass Association of America Conference... AKA: meeting new people and reconnecting with old friends. This year the conference for me was way better than last. Sure, last year I won an award, but I didn’t know anyone, and since I was so nervous about meeting...

Arise installed

A few months ago, I sold Arise to a wonderful woman, but she still had a problem; she had three windows. So we worked out a plan where I would make two more pieces to match Arise. We decided that these flanking pieces would be vertical instead of horizontal to add a...

Cleaning and Organizing, part one

Art Crawl is done for the spring. It was an excellent weekend. On top of meeting all the new people, reconnecting with current people and making new friends (all fun aspects of an open studio), one of my favorite and least favorite aspects of Crawl is cleaning out the...
