Mermaid

Red Mermaid

 

The inspiration for this was the one piece of red speciality glass I had. I saw the glass and thought "Why not? All my other mermaids have been in greens and blues." I wanted to "step out of the wave" on this one, so to speak!

Capitola Open Sign
 
Custom order for Stockton Bridge Grille, Capitola, CA.
 
The owner of the Stockton Bridge Grille had an "Open" sign on a chalkboard out in front of his restaurant. I offered to make him a new sign out of stained glass. At certain times of the evening, the little "lights" over the bridge in the sign sparkle when the sun sets behind the glass.

I made this RV window for one of the most patriotic men I've never met. That's right! I've never met Mike from New York, retired from the Army, but when he received his window, he called me in tears, he loved it so much!

Waves and Bubbles

Custom order for Dr. Jerel Philip, DDS, Santa Cruz, CA.

I worked with Dr. Philip to create an interior "wall" to hide his sterilization area from his operating area. Because the windows are back-lit, it creates a wonderful under-water effect in his office.

Sea Turtle
 
Custom order (window shown is not for sale)
 
While traveling back from Alaska on the Casiar Hwy., I stopped at Jade City where I purchased a slice of jade. I later incorporated it into my own RV window. Although I can't reproduce this window exactly without another trip to Alaska, I'd be happy to make a similar one -- it would still be wonderful to wake up to that sweet turtle every morning!
