I worked with a local general contractor and their client on the design to fit their existing framed openings. These were built for a new house construction. The colors and design were based from an existing stained glass work the client already had. The design and colors were to be the same with some differences between them.

This project is special to me. I built this for a house-warming gift for a lady I worked with. It was going to be a surprise for her; she had been very supportive to me in pursuing the stained glass art. Before her new house was finished, she passed away unexpectedly. She never knew about the piece I was working on for her. After finishing the glass work, I still wanted her family to have it and put it in the framed opening it was designed to fit.

This piece was done back in 2004 for some friends of mine. During this time they were expecting their first child, John Michael. I really wanted to surprise them with this as a gift for John Michael's room when he arrived. So the race begins!! Now the couple wants me to modify this piece so it will fit a framed opening in their house, which can be done very easily.
This project was made for a client that was to be given as a Christmas gift for their mother. But by the time Christmas arrived they had a change of heart and decided to keep the piece for themselves. I'm glad they enjoy the work I've done. This is just one of the reasons I like designing and building art from stained glass and seeing the reactions of the clients to the completed projects.
This project I built from a photo for a client's window during the remodeling of their house. This piece is about 4 feet by 3 feet to fit an existing framed opening. Everyone was well pleased with it. I really would have liked to have kept this one for myself. I could build another one but change it up a little; I only build one of each design because it makes each stained glass piece a more personal experience.
