                                                        ARTIST STATEMENT

 

In the 80's I FOUND a group of nontraditional STAINED GLASS ARTISTs WHOMS WORKS I JUST LOVED. I was able to study under one of them  NARCISSUS QUAGLIATA in OAKLAND, CALIFORNIA.   IT CHANGED HOW I FELT ABOUT  STAINED GLASS AND THE ART THAT COULD BE MADE FROM IT.   

 

I WORK IN LEADED AND COPPER FOIL STAINED GLASS METHODS AS WELL AS HAND ETCHING ON GLASS, SANDBLASTING, FUSED GLASS, PAINTED AND OVERLAYS ON GLASS.  I DESIGN AND MADE WHAT EVER I CAN VISUALIZE, GLASS BOXES, ANGELS, CANDLE HOLDERS, VASES AND ORNAMENTS, STAINED GLASS WALL ART, MOSAIC WALL ART etc.

 

MY ALL TIME FAVORITE IS STAINED GLASS MOSAIC WALL ART because IT ALLOWS ME TO FEEL WHAT I AM DOING AND DO WHATEVER I FEEL.

 

THERE IS  NO RIGHT OR WRONG WAY OF CREATING MOSAICS.   NO SIZE LIMITATIONS.  NO COLOR LIMITATIONS.  I AM ABLE TO ADD WHATEVER MATERIALS I FEEL WILL MAKE THE ART RIGHT FOR ME.  IN RETURN WHAT I HOPE MAKES IT ENJOYABLE TO OTHERS.

 

Several years ago I WAS BLESSED TO BE ABLE TO CONVERT THE WATER COLOR PAINTINGS OF TEN STUDENTS OF A  LOCAL ELEMENTARY SCHOOL INTO STAINED GLASS WINDOWS FOR THE SCHOOLS COURTYARD.  BEAUTIFUL IS ALL I CAN SAY.  THE COLORS TAKE YOUR BREATH AWAY AND LEAVES YOU WITH LOTS AND LOTS OF SMILES.  THE CHILDREN WERE SO PROUD TO SEE THEIR ART AS PART OF THE BUILDING.  SOMETHING THAT WILL LAST  WAY PASS THEIR YEARS AT THE SCHOOL AND EVEN THEIR CHILDRENS IF LEFT IN PLACE.

 

MY LIFE LONG WISH IS TO MAKE OTHERS LOOK AT STAINED GLASS AND STAINED GLASS MOSAIC ART THE SAME WAY THEY VIEW PAINTINGS AND PHOTOGRAPHY. Because what they do  WITH A BRUSH OR CAMERA  I CAN DO with Stained GLASS.

 

I have been around for a long time and have produced more windows and doors than I can recall.  My Mosaic Art has found homes from coast to coast.  I Love what I do. THAT INCLUDES HELPING TO TAKE THE MYSTERY OUT OF THE PROCESS FOR THE NEW STAINED GLASS ARTIST.

 

HOPE YOU ENJOY MY ART.
