Hi there. This is my first post and I’m very excited to share my creations, ideas and questions about My Stained Glass Works.
I began working in glass a couple of decades ago but then put it aside until last spring. Now, in retirement, I have more time to pursue this passion. I invite you to view my work, and comment on or offer helpful advice.
The designs are entirely mine and often come from Jewish sources as well as personal connections with friends and family.
Why glass? I started working with glass on a lark. I took a Rec & Ed class and discovered the challenge and the beauty of designing and executing my vision. My first piece was in honor of the birth of my son, Ari. Ari is Hebrew for lion and the design is primitive with his name in Hebrew intertwined with the lion’s tail.
The next few pieces were also dedicated to people with their name and a symbol representing their personality or interest.
Now I’m expanding to pieces experimenting with shapes and colors. I hope you enjoy!
