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."

Monday, June 28, 2004: A Much-Delayed Denouement
We finished the last transom, over the bathroom door, a couple of weeks ago.

Right next to its neighbor over the guest bedroom/office.

I puttied, a task which had been delayed since---two winters ago, I think? And Don built and installed the frame, which I painted.

You may be thinking, "Gosh, didn't the frames on those transoms used to be a muted sage green color?" You'd be right. But that was before we decided to sell our house. Apparently, the first rule of home-selling is to strip your home of any and all personality which may be expressed by way of interior paint colors.

We close on the sale of this house, and the purchase of our next, in one month. The transoms convey. Our new house doesn't have transoms, but there's always room for stained glass somewhere. The question is, is there time?
