Navaho Inspired

This new window was inspired by an old Navaho rug design. The colors are actually more like the second photo - the background is shades of gold and does not have the green cast that the first photo shows. It measures 24" wide by 36" tall and was made using both new and vintage stained glass, glass globs, and vintage glass and crystal jewels. It is very dimensional because of the faceting in the jewels.

Majestic Oak

This is a small window - measuring just 16" x 22". The image is multilayered and includes painted details as well as additional glass layers. The border surrounding the focused image was designed to look like a fringed rug. When I cropped the photo I left the window ledge exposed so you can see how the glass casts colored reflections.

Fall Colors

This window measures 24" wide by 36" tall. The leaves have been painted with glass enamels and there have been a small number of additional leaves added to the surface after the piece was completed. Today was very overcast so there is not any sparkle to the photo but as you can see the image is very colorful!

Hill Country Sunset IV

This is another in my series of
Hill Country Sunsets. It measures
24" wide by 36" tall. The colors
are a little more subtle than in
some of the previous versions.
The dichroic sun reflects as red,
magenta, yellow or silver
depending on the angle of the light shining through it. The distant oak trees have been created using a new technique of glass painting and the addition of glass shards.
