Bio

I began my stained glass career in 1978, working at two small stained glass studios from 1978 to 1998. I relocated in 1999 and began my own business called South Shore Stained Glass, creating custom stained glass windows lamps and sand blasted/carved works of art.I was active donating artwork to Ducks Unlimited, The Ruffed Grouse association and Whitetails Unlimited for their fund raising efforts. I consigned work to several galleries in the Door County area of Wisconsin. I closed my business in 2000 and in 2019 began creating stained glass artwork on a personal level JUST FOR THE FUN..once again..enjoying the sound of the cutter wheel on the glass and the glitter and magic of the glass in the sun.

Double the fun!, May 15, 2021 5 stars
Pros
This glass offers TWO sides that are completely different. The wild and crazy beautiful side is SO great for kaleidoscope bodies.I make side by side cuts so the colors run consecutively around the scope.Where the first side and the last side meet I always make the bottom of the scope. This works well for lamp shades too! Every piece of the scrap leftover from my projects is super for jewelry and mosaics and kaleidoscope wheels! It is easy to cut and the price is right.! In a flat glass project, even when using the alternate side as the front viewing surface which is a one color aqua tone, in the sunlight the crazy wild side shows through giving an almost 3D effect, Surprising!
Cons
I wish this style glass was made in MORE three color combinations !Red,black and white please!
Other Thoughts
Do not be afraid of this glass..it is easy to cut!I use a Fletcher steel wheel carbide cutter and it has never gone wrong!

Easily soldered to any foiled or leaded artwork you create.The finish stays bright and shiny.

I wish there were larger sizes of these nickel rings,the quality is A-PLUS!
Other Thoughts
I would LOVE to be able to purchase shiny copper rings in this size( and bigger) to match the copper patina.Wood frames are a hard to come by!
