HOUSEWARES  GRAVEYARD  WINDOWS
The Graveyard series are windows whose primary glass is rescued from the mundane life of serving bowls, platters, goblets, lids, jars and general household utility. There are a limited number of glasses available as a "stained glass" material that possess strong prismatic qualities or have images imprinted in them. The texture of a glass bends light depending on its irregular or cut surface. Assembling the variety of textures creates a jewel-like symphony of texture. The limited availability of these objects makes each piece unique and a one of a kind work of art.

PERSONALIZED KITCHEN WINDOW
This window is installed in a space between the kitchen and living room of a quaint house in Belmont, MA. Most of the glass images and textures follow a kitchen theme but there are several medicine bottle remnants with vaguely scientific-sounding names in recognition of the couple's work as research scientists. Their son's birthday is hidden in code in the window using numbers and bottle bottom coding dots
OCEAN THEMED GREEN BOTTOM WINDOW
OCEAN THEMED GREEN BOTTOM WINDOW
This "Green Bottoms" window is installed in a lovely home on Simmons Island, GA. To personalize the window, the client requested the inclusion of "sea glass" they found at the local beach. The addition of greenish blue plate fragments and jewels in the border give the window's color range an ocean feel
CONNELY RESIDENCE GREEN BOTTOM WINDOW
CONNELY RESIDENCE GREEN BOTTOM WINDOW
The Connely Residence window is another in my "Green Bottoms" series. The use of green found objects is the most popular in the use of reclaimed or recycled glass.
DOOR PANEL 1 for TUDOR
DOOR PANEL 1 for TUDOR
One of three door panels for a beautiful Tudor/Arts and Crafts hybrid house in Cambridge,MA My two favorite pieces in the panel are Peter Rabbits Garden Party to the right of the ship and Tweety to the upper left of the ship. This type of found object window also acts like a narrative about the client. I will include pieces that reflect their interests or what they are like.
DOOR PANEL 2 for TUDOR
DOOR PANEL 2 for TUDOR
Another of the door panels from the Tudor/Arts and crafts house in Cambridge. I love the Dr Kilmers Swamp Root bottle part on the right. It has a kidney embossed in it.
PRISMATIC PANEL
PRISMATIC PANEL
A small prismatic panel with Luxfer tiles, butter cover dishes, prisms, jewels, and rectangular bowl bottoms.
BAR WINDOW
BAR WINDOW
Another alcohol/bar themed window for a house in Marblehead,MA. I included quack medicine bottles, some "bar" food references, and a flattened glass humidor that is an image of a "Dime Store Cigar Indian" (very politically incorrect!). The cluster of grapes will be plated on the backside with purple glass to make Concord grapes.
CHILDRENS HOSPITAL EXTENDED STAY RESIDENCE WINDOW
CHILDRENS HOSPITAL EXTENDED STAY RESIDENCE WINDOW
This is one of the one of the windows I created for an extended stay residence at Childrens Hospital in Brookline,MA. The large house was acquired by Childrens from a fraternity that managed to not completely destroy the beautiful architectural elements. Childrens rehabed the house and added a number of rooms for families to stay in while their child was receiving treatment at the hospital. 65 artists were selected to install art in the building. The window hangs in a breakfast nook with references to food, Bostons history and just some fun kid oriented imagery all in found glass objects.
50th BIRTHDAY WINDOW
50th BIRTHDAY WINDOW
This window was commissioned as a 50th birthday gift for a wine lover in Maryland. The grapes in the center are a grape pattern serving dish plated behind with a piece of purple glass. The green objects are wine bottle bottoms, 5 green, 1 brown as a sneaky reference to his 50th birthday.
MASON JAR WINDOW
MASON JAR WINDOW
I have done quite a few commissions that included flattened mason jars bit I like the addition of the border with images of fruits and vegetables embossed in the glass. Images of items that might be stored in mason jars.
CHESTNUT HILL WINDOW
CHESTNUT HILL WINDOW
This window was a commission for a house in Chestnut Hill,MA. The designer suggested we not cram the piece full of objects which proved to be a great idea. The negative spaces between the objects and the wide leads create a very different pattern than previous found object windows. The objects in this window are candy and cookie jar lids and the background glass a Kokomo SCP textured glass.
FOUND OBJECT WINDOW with RED DEPRESSION GLASS
FOUND OBJECT WINDOW with RED DEPRESSION GLASS
I created one of these found object windows with the red Depression glass that was hanging in the studio when a client came in and asked me to create one for their space. I enjoy how some commissions are inspired by a window that I do as an art piece, and then sometimes a commission can inspire an art work.
FOUND OBJECT WINDOW
FOUND OBJECT WINDOW
This is another of the found object windows that became a narrative of the client and her family. It also includes gardening, food, patriotic images and some rocking fun textured glass.
DOOR SIDELIGHT WINDOW IN WOBURN MA

GREEN BOTTOM WINDOW
GREEN BOTTOM WINDOW
Another commission in the Green Bottoms series. It is fun to push the color range of the greens to suit the colors of the house.
OLIVE GREEN BOTTOM WINDOW
OLIVE GREEN BOTTOM WINDOW
A commission for a house in NJ. This is the first in the Green bottoms series where the green objects are all in the olive end of the spectrum. The gold ruby jewels in the corners compliment the greens nicely.
FOUND OBJECT WINDOW
FOUND OBJECT WINDOW
Another in the found object series and I wanted to try and use a lot of larger platters mixed with smaller objects.
 : The Blue window is composed of cobalt blue storage jar parts and stemware bottoms. The border is a handblown multiple color streaky glass sprinkled with faceted glass jewels.

RECLAIMED OBJECTS
RECLAIMED OBJECTS
15-1/2" x 13-1/2"

As with many of the Reclaimed Objects windows in our studio, the subject and composition of The Great Dr. Kilmer window work around the size and shape of several medicine bottles that have been cut apart and flattened. The window was originally going to feature Dr. Kilmer exclusively but upon researching the world of folk cures and remedies and finding several other medicine bottles, I decided to include a few more lively and strange images and cures. Beyond the strangeness of the cures (swamp root?) the promotion of the characters behind the cures is a fun peak back at the world of medicine from 1875 through the 1920's.
TRIBUTE to PB&J featuring the Mr. Peanut® Chorus Line
TRIBUTE to PB&J featuring the Mr. Peanut® Chorus Line
19.5" x 26.5"

My inspiration for the PB&J window is rooted in the iconographic status of both Mr. Peanut® and peanut butter and jelly. At first glance the window just 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.
THIS LITTLE PIGGY WENT TO MARKET
THIS LITTLE PIGGY WENT TO MARKET
The central piece of the Piggy window was harvested from the bottom of a giant pigs knuckles jar. The words This little piggy went to market are embossed around the pig. The surrounding round pieces are also embossed with images and the words describing herbs and their uses.

The central pig piece is surrounded by chips of brightly colored and highly textured Depression glass.
