From the Vault

The elves are working away in the studio; we have two large domes underway an 8’dia and a 10’dia. While those take shape, enjoy this Oval Flat Lens designed by Lori Morris Design, built and installed by us.

Welcome Andrea!

Wednesday, December 7th, 2011

I’ve been a bit remiss about this announcement nevertheless… without further delay…. we are thrilled to have Andrea working in our studio! She has adapted her technique to build on a curved form and transferred her previous experience with copper foil to working with lead came, all without missing a beat. Also like our multi talented group of artisans she is an artist in her own right; creating fused glass jewellery pieces among other items. Welcome Andrea!


Pictured below are some new dome centres, and mini dome lenses.

Looking Up….

…from the studio floor.

Shown above is a remarkable example of Bill’s signature style, a whimsical interlocking pattern. Although the panels are all identical the interlinking looping circles unite the repeating panels into a larger tableau. In addition distinctive glass textures add a layer of detail and subtle complexity to the overall pattern creating this unique elegant leaded glass dome.
