Artist In Stain Glass (View Portfolio)
Aurora, IN 47001
I am a self-taught stained glass artist who has been working in this beautiful medium for the last ten years. Iíve created many of my own design patterns and use others that I find to be creatively inspirational. There is an emotional connection, a passion, for creating art in glass. I never put limits on anything I do. I use the copper foil method exclusively and insist on making a piece look 3-D. You will see free form designs more often in my work than a square frame. I like to see the detail and definition of the piece. The colors, textures, and variations in glass help to inspire and motivate me. I like to incorporate jewels, stones, anything to add interest or character to the piece. Iím always learning something new with glass. My earlier pieces were typically one-dimensional but I quickly discovered ways of making the piece look more real by soldering pieces on top of each other or turning the glass at different angles. I also add decorative soldering when I can or when I think it makes the piece more interesting. I found doing plates or vases to be a lot of fun because they could all be different in so many ways; not just in the glass design or colors but the soldering as well. Glass has been a wonderful creative outlet for me. I consider all my projects to be custom pieces because no two pieces of glass are alike. I also like to do portraits of people and animals. I have a rather large family so I have had lots of practice with different faces. I love the idea of a portrait in glass. They make wonderful, meaningful gifts that will last for many years. They truly are one of a kind.
Iíve been in several shows over the last five years. I have been commissioned to design and create medallions for the Swiss Wine Festival in Vevay, Indiana. The wineries are very proud of their original medals made exclusively for them. I enjoyed having an exhibit at the Madison Chautauqua this year for the first time. Itís great hearing what people have to say about my artwork because I love when they see in my glass what it is I feel. Exhibited my Glass Art at Signatures in Vevay, Indiana during the month of May, 2009.
