Earlier this year we were asked if we would make a donation to the BC & Alberta Guide Dogs in support of their 1st Annual Calgary Trivia Night fundraiser which raises funds for the development of guide dogs for kids and others with Autism, as well as seeing eye dogs for Blind people.
We made this stained glass dog from a free Spectrum Glass pattern which was used as a silent auction fund raising item. It measured approximately 8 inches wide by 11 inches high. We used Wissmach 145SP glass for the majority of the dog.
The 1st Annual Calgary Trivia Night Fundraiser was most successful.

We needed a Baby Shower Gift this Spring and we decided to make this Baby Lamb, it measured approximately 6 x 6 inches. The pink flower was a stick on added to the finished product. We solder fine silver chain into the back solder seams for hanging.

For Christmas 2015 we were commissioned to make this grain elevator.
Our clients father in law purchased this grain elevator located in East Central Alberta a number of years ago and painted it John Deere Green & Yellow colors.
They wanted a replica of the elevator in stained glass that they could actually put wheat in from the farm.
The roof on the top is removable to allow this, we added 2 small nails soldered into the removable roof to provide stability when handling to prevent the roof from slipping off.
We used Spectrum’s new clear Barnwood glass along with Spectrum’s green and yellow.
The elevator is approximately 12 inches high x 6 inches wide and 4 inches deep. It takes time and lots of patience to solder together but the end result is quite stunning.
