One of my earliest memories is sitting in church, mesmerized by the brilliant lights and colors shining through the stained glass windows above me. I was fascinated by the images and feelings they evoked.
My love affair with stained glass became more personal 13 years ago, when I took a copper foil glass class. Before my first Victorian panel was even finished, I was hooked -- on the zip of the cutter across the glass, the satisfaction when a complex score breaks just right, and the feeling of textured glass between my fingers.
But most seductive is the thrill I feel when I hold a gorgeous piece of glass up to the sunlight, and see the wonderful play of colors and light just begging to become flowers.......ocean.......meadows.......sky......it captures my heart, and inspires my soul!!!
