WELCOME to this online portfolio...
I make stained glass windows from a mosaic of mouth-blown colored glass. Each individual piece is hand-painted and kiln-fired several times to fuse the imagery permanently into the glass. Painted pieces are fitted between lead channels, soldered and puttied. I use brushes, tools and materials largely unchanged since Medieval times.
You can watch the latest video
of me painting and assembling a portrait of Sir Edmund Hillary. Check out my Menfolk
series; and 12 raccoons for an astronaut
in an Airstream trailer.
View my religious commissions, including two 25ft windows for Marble Church
in NY City and take a tour of St Mary's Cathedral
, Portland, Oregon.
