Welcome to Reflections of Glass. I enjoy making beautiful stained glass pieces and want them to be affordable for everyone who enjoys this medium. I have always loved stained glass, but thought it was too expensive, which is one of the reasons I decided to learn how to do it. I enjoy the artistic side of it, as well as working with the glass itself which always has a special characteristic about it. I now have begun to incorporate other elements such as seashells and glass nuggets into the design that complement the piece and the natural environment it is meant to reflect.

Frank Lloyd Wright stained glass replica

I first admired Frank Lloyd Wright for his ability as an architect to integrate his buildings into the surrounding environment.  Then, I discovered that he designed and built many of his own stained glass windows and panels.  Here is a modified design based on an entry window in one of his Chicago homes. This is one of Frank Lloyd Wright's earliest asymmetrical designs. I used a large piece of rough rolled clear glass for many of the sections along with several other types and textures. 

Replica of entry window, Laura Gale House, 1909, Oak Park Illinois.

Seashells and Stained Glass

Though the cold New Hampshire snow can be seen in the background, this stained glass piece brings the warmth of the seashore to you. 

It was created as a Christmas gift for a friend and is made with champagne and white on clear baroque glass with two large scallop shells decorating the center.  Can you can imagine the seashells swirling in the ocean foam as you follow the curves and flow of the glass?
