GREEN BOTTOM with LAVENDER BORDER WINDOW
28” x 25.5”

CLICK IMAGE FOR LARGER VIEW

The GREEN BOTTOMS with LAVENDER BORDER window is part of the “Houseware Graveyard Series” windows whose primary glass is rescued from the mundane life of serving bowls, platters, goblets, lids, jars and other general household items. The “found objects” used in this series provide a unique field of textures far beyond what is commercially available for stained glass use. The texture of a piece of glass bends light depending on its irregular or cut surface. Assembling the variety of these surfaces creates a jewel-like symphony of textural movement. The limited availability of these types of objects makes each window unique and a one of a kind work of art.

This particular window is comprised of a variety of highly textured serving plates, wine bottle bottoms, stemware bottoms and faceted stained glass jewels. The background is made from an assortment of textured hand-blown glass and the border is composed of several different patterns of pale lavender “Depression Glass” serving plates.

The BEETLE WINDOW is the first in a series of insect windows made from my hand-blown roundels. The body of the “Beetle” is created using a hand-blown roundel; the eyes have an actual insect eye image photo sandblasted into them; and the border features larvae and other insect images. The background consists of two layers of glass; the front layer is a pale lavender blown glass with the leg and antennae painted and fired with traditional glass paints, and the bottom layer is fracture streamer glass representing foliage. In keeping with the Arts and Crafts style of the design, the window is set into a quarter sawn white oak frame.

OPALESCENT LANDSCAPE is a studio piece I created as part of a recent "Demo Talk" at the Museum of Fine Arts Boston.

I created this design over 30 years ago based upon a turn-of-the-century pen and ink drawing.

CITY SISYPHUS WINDOW
24.5” x 29.75”

CLICK IMAGE FOR LARGER VIEW

CITY SISYPHUS pays homage to the work ethic and meaning found in a life of work and labor. Sisyphus is pushing his gear and stands on the "human" buildings of this city. The tenement buildings are rendered in a variety of colors and ornament. Some of the windows resemble faces and have personality. The structures above the tenements are the manufacturing buildings of today's high tech industry. The window patterns and decoration are rigid and ordered. The buildings of high finance reach into the sky and the textured glass glistens jewel-like as the sun strikes the window.

The RUBY FISH TET window was created by using a combination of traditional stained glass and found object glass for the fish and the coral reef. The found objects used are serving platters, flattened bowls, and snack plates. The "Tet" in the title refers to a tetradict color formulae, which utilizes four colors to compliment the central red fish.

PRISMATIC ROUNDS WINDOW
28.5" x 28.5"

CLICK IMAGE FOR LARGER VIEW

The PRISMATIC ROUND window uses bottoms of serving plates and bowls surrounded by faceted glass jewels made in Germany sprinkled between. The remaining areas between the plates and jewels are filled with custom dichroic glass made by applying dichroic coatings on colored glass to produce weird spectrums of color. The dichroic glass also causes migration of color around the window as the prismatic objects capture color from the outside world, and the jewels shift the colors of the dichroic to match the captured colors.

AMBER ROUNDELS WINDOW
25.5” x 37.25”

CLICK IMAGE FOR LARGER VIEW

The AMBER ROUNDELS window is constructed from small jewels and hand-blown roundels. The two smallest roundels and all jewels were made in Germany and I created the remaining hand-blown roundels at Avon Place Glass in Cambridge MA. Knowing that I could create more unique custom roundels than are commercially available is what motivated me to start blowing glass.

The color range of amber, aurora and red highlight the textural movement within the roundels, especially in the large 11” roundel in the upper central area.

IDOL SUNTRACKER WINDOW
24" x 52"

The SUNTRACKER IDOL window utilizes prismatic glass to project light and color into a room. The center column of the window features a small reeded glass that projects shafts of white and colored light while the two lines of bevels send angled, segmented light patterns. The central strip of glass is optically clear dichroic glass that projects a vivid strip of color that changes color as the angle of the sun shifts. The large square piece (angled) at the top of the shaft is a polished antique lighting fixture lens that works like a Fresnel lens, capturing the image of the outside world upside down and reversed.

TRIBUTE TO PB&J featuring the Mr. Peanut® Chorus Line

The inspiration for the TRIBUTE TO PB&J featuring the Mr. Peanut® Chorus Line window is rooted in the iconic status of both Mr. Peanut® and childhood’s favorite sandwich, the peanut butter and jelly. At first glance the window appears to be a pleasing design featuring grapes and leaves on a field of clear textured glass. Closer examination reveals the angled Mr. Peanuts® seemingly dancing in celebration lorded over by the exquisite (ashtray bottom) Mr. Peanut® at the top of the window.

BALUCH RUG WINDOW
Approximately 3’ x 5’

CLICK IMAGE FOR LARGER VIEW

I created the BALUCH RUG window to capture the spirit of fiber arts/rugs in glass and to push into new territories of complexity. This window is a literal translation of a handmade Baluch Persian rug, whose hallmark is typically small rugs with whimsy, bright unexpected colors and lively playful patterns.
All glass used is flashed glass (a thin veneer of color on top of a clear glass). The flower patterns in the center were originally a solid color and everything except the piping of the flower line were etched. Calligraphy pens were used to painstakingly pixelate the extremely detailed line pattern while the weave pattern was etched into the back of the glass, with glass paint pushed into the etching. The edge was purposely left "soft" and undulating like a rug would be. The resulting exquisite glass “duplicate” of this rug carries every minute detail and all the vibrant colors of the original rug but has the added bonus of being “backlit” by sunlight making the details, design and colors even more beautiful.
