A Touch of Glass and... Stained Glass Home
Here at A Touch of Glass i've been doing Stained Glass for more years than i care to admit to; handcrafting everything from stained glass suncatchers, to windows, to whatever catches my fancy or someone else's. Recently, i have been experimenting with Fused Glass and enjoying the challenge and surprise of finding just the right kiln settings that create magical changes in shape and color of each piece of glass.
Each sheet of glass is hand cut and inspired by the colors of springtime flowers, the crackle of an autumn fire, songs of the birds in summer, the babble of a winter brook and the whisper of the spirits in the trees. I use both the Tiffany Copper Foil method, as well as Came construction for my stained glass pieces, many of which are multi-dimensional and incorporate mixed media designs. The fused glass pieces are also hand cut and assembled, then fired in the kiln to achieve just the right transformation of the glass, whether it ends up a pendant, bowl, candleholder or plaque.
Special orders and custom work are always welcome.
This website is, and will probably always be, a work in progress. There will always be new stained glass and fused glass pieces to add and changes of mind to improve the look and feel of "A Touch of Glass...and then some". Please visit again to see the additions and changes.

We are pleased to offer select carvings of several Norse Gods and Goddesses, as well as carved Hammers (Mjölnirs). Each statue is uniquely represented and handcrafted by the folk at Studio Yarinka in the Ukraine. We are happy to be their liason in the States and you can find some of these carvings at the shows and festivals we attend during the year. The photos shown are an example of some of the carvings that have passed our way. Some of these statues have ventured off to their new homes, but we DO have more and we DO have more on order. Feel free to contact us for more information, photos and availability.
