Animal Stained Glass Art

Stained Glass Art is my favorite medium. Glass comes in a constellation of colors and textures, and like the ocean, changes mood with the light. I utilize the intensity of stained glass to create vibrant one-of-a-kind custom works of art.

Clients can participate in the creation or provide a treasured picture of a pet and watch it come to life in glass. It is my objective to capture a client’s memories and the animal’s essence in the art of stained glass.

“ORBIT”

I created this hanging stained glass panel of my beloved Dalmatian, “Orbit” from his photo to capture his markings and his personality. This type of “hanging” panel provides flexibility as it can be moved…i.e., it is not permanently installed in a window or door. I can create a hanging stained glass panel of your pet so your glass art piece of your loved one can go with you where ever life leads you!

“MANDELLA”

This stained glass panel is commission piece of a cat named “Mandella”. I created him from a picture of a client’s favorite cat. She didn’t want the window to be to big… 8 inches high by 11 inches wide, with more than 100 pieces of glass!! The stained glass window is lit in a cabinet to honor her best friend, “Mandella”.

“Harley” is a custom 32 3/4″ x 27 1/4″ hanging stained glass panel I was commissioned to design & create as a surprise for my client’s wife for Christmas. He was so excited to give it to her that he surprised her early and hung it in her bathroom, so when she came home from work, it would be the first thing she saw. My client shared with me that when she saw it from afar, she knew immediately it was “Harley”. “Harley” was his wife’s most cherished beloved dwarf rabbit. She said that I brought out an essence of Harley that even photos never could and will treasure it forever. Harley was displayed in the “Gallery of Excellence” at the 2010 Glass & Bead Expo in Las Vegas, Nevada.

“MOXIE”

Her dog “Moxie” is the mascot of the design center show room and goes everywhere she does! This 10″ x 10″ stained glass panel consists of 130 pieces of glass! The panel was displayed at jbs Environments in honor of her very loved Rat Terrier, “Moxie”

“PEACHES”

I designed this stained glass panel of “Peaches” to compliment the client’s stained glass panel I created of “Mandella” above. Again, my client didn’t want the window to be to big… just 7 inches high by 10 1/2 inches wide to display in the matching curio cabinet across from where the stained glass panel of “Mandella” resides. The piece of “Peaches” includes 92 pieces of glass and 20 colors & textures of glass to captured her lively personality! The client was so happy to have both of her favorite cats, the beloved “Mandella” and her current feisty one “Peaches” preserved in glass!

“YODA”

I designed this 60″ x 18″ hanging stained glass panel of “Oreo”, my client and friend’s prized Spotted Saddle Horse name “Oreo”. She wanted a piece to provide privacy from the window in the courtyard into her home. I thought what a great way to provide a shield and capture the powerful presence of her dearly loved and prized horse. Her response when ” Oreo” was installed in the window was: “I so LOVE the stained piece of Oreo!!!!!!!!!! It truly sets off that area of the home, as well as the courtyard when you walk in!! I can not thank you enough for helping come up with the idea, and “personalization” of our home!!”

Since my client & dear friend loved the stained glass panel of “Oreo” above, she wanted me to created a hanging stained glass panel for her living room window that captured the different personalities of her two cherished birds, Jay & Cookie. They are night & day different in temperament, size and species. I designed this 16″ x 21″ panel to bring out all these characteristics and place them in a natural setting. She was just thrilled!!! She says their eyes follow her were ever she goes and I captured them perfectly!!

“FLYING GURNARD”

This original stained glass panel is of a “Flying Gurnard”. I photographed this unique fish underwater off the coast of Bonaire and created it in stained glass! It consist of 250 pieces of glass and changes hue over the course day and night. The piece is included as part of my Exhibit at the Enterprise Library Gallery in Las Vegas, Nevada, 9/15/09-11/15/09.

“POLLY”

I was commissioned to create a stained glass window for a client’s office of a Red Bird, representing upward growth and expansion. This window is an interior piece, so I designed a light box to illuminate the Red Bird named “Polly”. It is mounted to the wall and can be seen the minute anyone walks in the door!
