recent work

This is a leaded glass sidelite, part of a larger entryway. I did the design and my father fabricated the window. 

This is a new leaded glass door. The door is made of black walnut, the center is made up of all clear glass, rondels, heavy and weak seedy.

leading a stained glass panel

This is one of 32 leaded glass panels that will be installed in a church clerestory window. The glass is very dark, looks black in the photo. This is because the glass is heavily painted and is made up of very dark colors. Very unlike the sidelite or doors I do that use mainly clear glass. You can't tell from the video, but the sheet of paper is a leading guide and shows a outline of where each piece of glass is supposed to go.
