I love finding cool things that have hit the curb!

I found a nice desk....by nice I mean all good wood....but shabby. I'm going to paint it and make it over so that I can keep my makeup and hair supplies.

In regards to the originating thread 3 pages back – I do stained glass – I taught layout and design of leaded and tiffany style assembly including tiffany lamp construction for 16 years. I work on stained glass windows for some protégées churches here. I work in conjunction with other artists for the painting and firing and more sophisticated design then I do, I am an assembly tech so to speak and fire the glass or build the mould to slump a piece on. If it can be designed I can build it. I have a basic window in construction showing stages right here in the below link…

I did intend to put a blurb on the large photos describing the process that I think I will do now.

My favourite piece of my work is in a Ukrainian church in Calgary Alberta.

These two windows where created by Lori and I. They have real polished jewels in them.

Ok - I talk too much …

Thanks very much. It is not hard to become obsessed with constructing a project one is eager to do. Glass is painting with light.
