This is a design I posted about a while ago. I finally got around to creating the panel. I think it turned out quite well. The diameter of the piece is 13" x 18", I used Youghiogheny glass in it primarily, maybe a little Spectrum and other scraps of other manufacturers I had hanging around. It's framed in a fairly wide leaf lead, and the hangers are actually a sling that goes from the left hook around the bottom of the piece and attached at the point that the right side hook is attached. The leaf of the lead is then burnished to fold in on itself. It's a safer alternative for hanging a round or oval panel that has a lead frame, as lead stretches.
One is a sight frequently seen in the Maine woods, Mr. Moose. I call this one "My Maine Man".
The second pattern is none other than Portland Head Light, which is located in Cape Elizabeth, Maine. It is one of the, if not the, most photographed lighthouse in the U.S. I took many pictures the day I visited Fort Williams Park, which is where the lighthouse is located. The light was commissioned by President George Washington and is still free to visit at beautiful Fort Williams Park.

I've been working with stained glass for 20+ years or so. In the beginning I took a class through our local recreation department. That got me hooked! For awhile I made beautiful stained glass objects for my friends and family as gifts.
After going through some life changes I decided that I needed to go back to my art. And now I have a beautiful shop/retail facility at my home. I teach classes and enjoy seeing how delighted my students are with their very first piece of stained glass.
I have made a transition to designing my own patterns and am able to design and create some very intricate designs using Glass Eye 2000.
I feel that I can design just about anything that a customer could want and truly enjoy creating something unique and unusual.
I hope that you enjoy your visit to my blog. And if you are interested in classes or having something commissioned, please feel free to call me at 207.653.2245.
