A commission from friends has led to a new venture: glass panels. More commonly referred to as stained glass windows, this type of design or narrative is created with light, line, color, and texture. Flat or plate glasses are cut and ground into specific shapes, each edge is covered with a thin copper foil and pieced together using lead solder.
A collaboration of artists Fiona Clark and Vincent DeLisle.

Our original designs feature Fiona's individually flameworked glass beads. We use primarily sterling silver for our hand fabricated settings and chains. Woven glass seed bead cords and semi-precious stone beads on hand knotted silk also accent many pieces.
We are also intrigued by the vessel form an continue to work with our blown glass and turned wood series of Lidded Vessels. Many include spun metal, inlay of exotic woods or sterling silver and hand faceted glass elements. Many recent pieces have our flame worked beads.
