You may have a photo of a thing of place that is meaningful to you, show us. You may have several ideas and not sure how to put them together, that's ok too, that's our strength to help put it all together. Send an email or call and a conversation can start the process.
Its a fun process and once we've completed one project , be careful you might be inspired to try another...
Art Glass can be more affordable that you might guess. We can offer you several options for your project so you can determine the budget and we promise to stick to it. You don't have to be an artist yourself .
Many times, I have been asked, as an artist ,what is your process? It's not an easy question to answer but I will try. As as a Calgary artist creating stained glass in Calgary area, I listen. The majority of my work is commissioned so I listen and interpret and offer ideas until I have made a connection with my client. From there they can see that I understand their taste, goals, personality and budget. An idea can start with a photo from a client , or just brainstorming and sketching. Following that are emails and perhaps a site visit. Once the design is finalized on paper it may be followed by samples and then it starts into production. This page will show you some projects from start to finish. I hope you enjoy a bit of a behind the scene look at the process. ~but I hope we can inspire you.

fall of 2018 the new studio started coming together. With loads of natural light and space to move and store materials it was really excitin
The first table was moved in - and I hit the ground running, each day involved some set up and some work on projects- it will be ongoing ~always ~
It didn't take too long to get all of the materials and tables set up into full motion. The studio is an ever changing, creative space
This work cannot be accomplished with out the amazing hard work of family. I am so appreciative and grateful for my family - of course not everyone is represented in this photo - you know who you are : )
I have to be a part of as many aspects of the company possible. This is my face after priming the ceiling .
Now the real work begins- the creative process unfolds ......
