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 08, 2006: We Have The Technology

My big old brick of a digital camera wasn't broken! Instead, it was the card that was bad. In technical terms: it went kerflooey.

Celebrate with me, won't you? Herewith: a few up-close-and-personal photos of dogwood window #1---now 30% leaded---for no reason other than that I could.

wow that old brick of a camera sure takes some sharp close-ups! i can definitely see why you were so worked up over it no longer functioning. did you figure out the culprit was a bad card on a whim? sometimes whims are the way to go.

It looks beautiful thus far! You've always been such a talented lady.

By the way, the spam challenge gave me a moment of pause. Let's blame that on the sinus infection, okay?

This is fascinating, not only in fabrication but in design.

Holy crap that's beautiful!

Beautiful panel. I am trying to find something for my sidelights. Love yours. Sorry to hear about the treasured friends. I am having a bit of a hard time too, so I can relate. Stained glass does help (therapy). I've only been doing it for a year, so I'm still very keen. Not very good, but very keen. Hope things go better for you.

Absolutely gorgeous. So gratifying, isn't it? I found your blog by way of a Google search for disposal of grinder sludge. You had an old post about cleaning out your grinder... what do we do with the sludge???
