Vitreous Painted Stained Glass

My stained glass work uses contemporary and traditional vitreous glass painting techniques, that are fired in a kiln and are fused to the surface of the glass. Sometimes I use sand blasting and etching with Hydrofluoric acid to effect the surface of the glass. Then the glass pieces are assembled into a stained glass panel, using cooper foil or lead came to hold all the puzzle pieces together. My passion for illustration gives me the desire to incorporate conceptual imagery and the beauty of nature into most of my artwork. I’ve been doing stained glass commissions for over 35 years.
