  • Mema’s Lamp

    Mema’s Lamp

    [siteorigin_widget class=”WP_Widget_Media_Image”][/siteorigin_widget] Built for this small “grape vine” base out of Spectrum Blackberry Cream Opal Art glass.   It’s amazing that the colors are so strong on the surface but it’s really chameleon glass. Put a bulb in the lamp and it almost whites out.   Put a colored bulb in it and you get an…

  • Night Lights

    Night Lights

    I’ve made a few nightlights, they’re fun to do and to have. I’ve done two out of a rose pattern I bought, the feather night light is actually a combination of fused glass and regular stained glass. I needed something a little different for the feather tips than what I had. Plus I wanted it…

  • Space Lamp

    Space Lamp

    I love this lamp, although wrapping copper foil around all those little glass bits was tedious to say the least!    Plus, the silly thing weighs a “ton”! This one was built before a base made an appearance and, as you’ll see from the pictures below, it started out as a hanging lamp.  Eww!   So…

  • Wave Forms, Lamps & Panel

    Wave Forms, Lamps & Panel

    [siteorigin_widget class=”WP_Widget_Media_Image”][/siteorigin_widget] I tried to go into production mode with these lamps and forms.   I cut several pieces of glass into square and rectangles of several sizes, ground them, then foiled and started building stuff.   The forms are much better with the narrower pieces, the full 1 inch wide pieces the round lantern for Andrew…

  • Andrew’s “Tuxedo” Lamp

    Andrew’s “Tuxedo” Lamp

    Andrew is my twenty-something son and he paid me a great compliment by wanting a table lantern similar to the ones I made from the “church glass”. There was no way to do one by Christmas so he had to wait until his birthday. Well, according to an unexplainable tradition, this is: the lamp, the…

  • Carol’s Lamp – Earl’s Glass

    Carol’s Lamp – Earl’s Glass

    When she gave me all of Earl’s glass, Carol told me that she had bought the lamp base for herself but he wasn’t able to get the shade built for her. So, out of all the glass she gave me, I built her shade, wired the base up and she seemed to enjoy having it…

  • Earl’s Panel – More Church Glass

    Earl’s Panel – More Church Glass

    [siteorigin_widget class=”WP_Widget_Media_Image”][/siteorigin_widget] This panel was salvaged from Dewey, OK United Methodist Church. I found it in some boxes of glass that was given to me by Mrs. Carol Shriver. A lot of the panel pieces of glass were broken, but there was no way to match the existing glass. I used epoxy to glue the…

  • Table Lanterns – Church Glass

    Table Lanterns – Church Glass

    These Table Lanterns are also from the church glass, the last of the larger pieces, particularly the swirly greens & purples.    I cut and ground the glass for two lamps at the same time. One lamp for my brother David and one for my sister Karen, for Christmas 2014.   I hope they will enjoy them…

  • My Church Glass Lamp

    My Church Glass Lamp

    [siteorigin_widget class=”WP_Widget_Media_Image”][/siteorigin_widget] My Lamp, number 2 from the church glass second window. There are more purples and whites in this one. The pattern was altered from the first lamp I built for Mom. Instead of the strips going from top to bottom, notice the very top piece goes across the entire panel and at the…

  • Mom’s Lamp – Church Glass

    Mom’s Lamp – Church Glass

    If you looked at the main Stained Glass page you’ll have seen the Church Glass window that my Dad had salvaged for me many years ago.   That salvaged glass was used to make this lamp for my Mom’s Birthday and Mother’s Day in 2014.   Being my first stained glass lamp shade, there was a big…

  • Bird of Paradise Lamp

    Bird of Paradise Lamp

    This cute little fan lamp was my first lamp, I used a free pattern from Delphi Glass and made and wired the base too. There are a lot of very tiny pieces in this lamp but it was worth it, lit only by a night light bulb it illuminates very well without a back or…

  • Bluebird Trompe-l’œil panel

    Bluebird Trompe-l’œil panel

    [siteorigin_widget class=”WP_Widget_Media_Image”][/siteorigin_widget] Bluebird Window Panel I put this panel together out of mostly scrap glass, some stained glass, some simple window pane.   It was an attempt at Trompe-l’œil (French for “deceive the eye”), usually an art piece that might make you think you’re looking out of a window or door.   Anyway, it still hangs in my house…

  • Seascape – Eyebrow Window Panel

    Seascape – Eyebrow Window Panel

    [siteorigin_widget class=”WP_Widget_Media_Image”][/siteorigin_widget] [siteorigin_widget class=”WP_Widget_Media_Image”][/siteorigin_widget] Eyebrow Window Panel This panel was finished a few years ago, after many years in this house, I finally made a panel for this tiny little eyebrow window.    Little bit slow……. I know!    Lovely colors that are so pretty in a wall that’s painted a pale green.    It’s…

  • Small Stuff

    Small Stuff

    [siteorigin_widget class=”WP_Widget_Media_Gallery”][/siteorigin_widget] Small Stuff I have quite a few small items that will make nice gifts or just a cool nick nack.    The little airplane mobile is really cute and the bottle bells are quite nice.    Each one makes a unique chime.
