Mad Women in the Attic

Stained Glass and Metal


To many, the term "stained glass" implies very traditional design, but most of what I do with glass is experimental and could not be replicated if I wanted to, which I don't. The glass I most love to work with is handmade with no two sheets being identical. My response to each sheet is different. I play around with a wide range of techniques, tools, and materials, all in a quest to surprise and delight myself. On occasion that actually happens, both for me and for visitors to my studio. You're invited to see if it works for you.
