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."

January 23, 2003: We Interrupt This Program, Part II in a Series
An older man was handing out these buttons; I got the last one in his bag. Yay!Mark Morford rants at

[A]ny attempt to outlaw a woman's spiritually and karmically-empowered right to terminate her own reproductive cycle, any attempt to control it with guilt and punishment and murderous ultra-right-wing Christian firebombs, simply results more harm to women, more of the infamous, potentially deadly back-alley abortions featuring the ubiquitous coat hanger -- still in use, you can be assured, in many repressed states. This is not even a debate. This is what happens when you try to cram a personal religious-based ideology down everyone's karma. Just ask the Taliban.

Yesterday was the 30th anniversary of the Roe v Wade Supreme Court decision legalizing abortion. I spent a couple of hours in front of the Supreme Court building, waving a sign and making noise. Here are 69 reasons why. If those 69 reasons scare you, too, you might consider making a donation to Planned Parenthood or NARAL Pro-Choice America, or signing NOW's Save Roe petition to send an email to your state senators.

Thanks to the friends who came out with me in the face-numbing cold to the rallies yesterday, and thanks to Momma Bastard for the deliciously ranty link.

What a lie
You don't care if women die
