THE TIFFANY CENSUS

I just read an article about an effort to compile the locations that have or did have Tiffany windows.  It is a giant challenge but certainly a worthy one. http://www.cambridge2000.com/tiffany/index.html is the web site.  It is very well done, and you can look up by city, date, designer, category,...

POWERFUL FORCES OF NATURE

I just love this piece from the Glass Craft and Bead Expo.  The women represent Earth, Wind, Fire and Water.  I love the symbolism, I love that Bonnie used women (powerful forces of nature), I love the framing, and how “earth” is escaping the frame. It is truly a...
