A client asked if we could reverse the grain elevator design and here it is featuring the Town of Claresholm, Alberta which is located approximately halfway between Calgary and Lethbridge. The glass represents the colors of the Alberta Wheat Pool Elevators. Originally the Wheat Pool elevators were a dark reddish color, but later were changed to a green. Unfortunately most of these prairie sentinels that could be seen for miles across the west have all but vanished. However you can enjoy them year round as a reminder of their grandeur in a stained glass sun catcher hanging in your window.

Cow angels are enjoyed by many who grew up or who are still living on farms and ranches.
We attach Wiggle Eyes which gives a comical feeling to this stained glass sun catcher.
Many years ago we made this “There’s No Place Like Home” and donated it as a silent auction item for a Good Sam Samboree in Stettler, Alberta. This stained glass piece is approximately 10 inches square, tinned wire used for various parts along with attaching the Blue Birds creates a 3D effect.
This design was featured in Glass Patterns Quarterly Summer 2001 edition.

The Blue Jays have returned for peanuts and sunflower seeds. Our grandkids love to see them each spring and enjoy setting out some peanuts in the shell for them. This one in stained glass measures about 9.5 inches wide x 6 inches high.
Spring is here and frogs are starting their chorus of wonderful sounds.
We make these out of a discontinued Bullseye Ring Mottle Glass which is prefect glass – fortunately we still have a few sq.ft. to make more.
The eyes are green glass nuggets and we also use yellow ones, along with copper or black patina on the soldering.
The large ones are about 6 x 4 inches and the smaller ones about 4 x 3.5 inches, attached to a metal rod which can vary in length depending on whether one wants to have them indoors in a potted plant or out doors in the garden.
