I'm learning the art (or is it a craft?) of stained glass. At this weblog, I record progress, note useful links, and document flesh wounds.

Posted a question to Warner-Crivellaro's Glass Chat regarding how to cut lead came at a sharper angle than my lead clippers can handle. Received in return some very useful pointers, plus one not-really-germane-to-my-actual-question rant on the existental nature of a snug lead joint and the foolishness of those who would spend their time trying to achieve such.
It's good to know that if I've really really got a hankering for a knock-down-drag-out online argument about some utterly irrelevant point, that even a venue so seemingly innocuous as a stained-glass forum will provide numerous opportunities from which to pick and choose... I guess.
Curiosity led me to search the Glass Chat archive for any instance of the word "Hitler". I received zero results. I elect to believe that this means the Search function must be broken.
But here's a fun trivia fact: there is at least one stained-glass portrait of Hitler in existence. An Episcopal church in Tulsa apparently has a heaven-and-hell-themed window depicting "evil leaders of the 20th century," and what such window could be complete without the inclusion of the Führer?
