Adventures in Dangerous Art
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.


The Art League
Where I took a lead class and a 3D construction class.

Weisser Glass Studio
Where I buy supplies, and where I took a foil class.

Virginia Stained Glass Co.
Where I buy supplies if I happen to be in Springfield and if they happen to have what I want.

Great prices on supplies, a lively and helpful Glass Chat message board, and excellent Technical Tips on stained glass tools and techniques.

Glass Galleries Links List
A list of Glass Chat users who've uploaded photos of their work.

The StoreFinder: Stained Glass Store Front
Lots of articles. Tutorials
Even more articles. Particularly recommended: "Anatomy of a design" and "Wood frames."

It's a glass cutter.
December 21, 2002: Now the Messy Part
Soldered flower shape, or nuclear cabbage, or whatever.

I've soldered both sides of the transom. Now to go outside and take advantage of what's left of a lovely sunny warm-ish day by puttying in the autumn-like breeze.

Yeesh. I take a long weekend, and miss a lot of transom-building action.

It looks really beautiful, Michelle!

It is beautiful...still reminds me of "Jitterbug Perfume" (A novel by Tom Robbins) not even close to a nuclear cabbage!!
Happy Holidays!!

Thanks Adrith and Heidi---Don is downstairs right this moment, torturing small pieces of wood with his table saw, in order to build a nice frame for the transom. I'm starting to get really excited to see it go up over the doorway to the dining room :)

Thank you, Kim, and happy Hanukkah and New Year's and (if you're lucky?) snow days off of work.
