Artist Statement

I create original stained-glass designs where I score, cut and grind each piece of art glass needed for the design. To construct the panel, I use either the leaded or copper foil method, sometimes both. Then I solder all joints and apply "glazing" putty to all the seams. I border the panel in zinc to create a long-lasting, strong and structural piece of glass art. I apply a wax polish that seals the lead cane and shines the glass to a sparkling finish.
