Bio

I've been a stained glass artist since 1980, working on commission. Now that I've had to close my "business" due to cancer, I create glass panels and fuse glass because it makes me feel better!

Uroboros green, red-orange, pumpkin with brown highlights

Uroboros green, red-orange, pumpkin with brown highlights

Item# U60-38
Outstanding colors!, August 13, 2011 4 stars
Pros
The colors in the piece I received were gorgeous--once I looked at it I revised my design to take advantage of a particular area within the glass and ended up with a really pretty slope of grass with golds, red-oranges and deep greens. I'm not disappointed.
Cons
Not easy as butter to cut.
Other Thoughts
I'll find a use for the rest of the glass, which has bright oranges, lemon yellows, greens on white background. The color description doesn't do this glass justice.
1/2 Breaking Pliers

1/2" Breaking Pliers

Item# 5060
Don't use worn out tools, July 27, 2011 5 stars
Pros
I hadn't changed my breaking pliers since I started working with glass, back in 1980. After 41 years the biting edges were round and they gummed the glass to death. The new pliers, which look and feel exactly like the old ones, break the glass cleanly and on the scoring line. What a joy!

None

Fine grit works beautifully, July 25, 2011 5 stars
Pros
I can't believe I waited this long (at least 10 years) to replace my old Glastar grinder head. This new one is fast, and doesn't take chips out of the glass.
Cons
none

Not at all like pictured, July 12, 2011 3 stars
Pros
It's Spectrum. It will cut like butter.
Cons
Not at all like it's pictured. The glass I received was very dark when no light was behind it; not usable for my project.

I love this glass., July 5, 2011 5 stars
Pros
When the glass arrived it was like someone had shipped a section of clouds to me. The glass is 96 coe and will fuse beautifully with a solid color 96 coe.
Cons

The glass is gorgeous, July 5, 2011 4 stars

This glass doesn't disappoint. The colors are beautiful and it cuts like butter.
Cons
The 12 x 12" sheet I received is much lighter pink than what Delphi represents.

 I really like the way you used the glass in Max's coat.  Bet that blaze was fun to cut out!
