A few years ago our clients lived in Southern Alberta and were selling their home, with the intent to build a new craftsman style home west of Rocky Mtn. House. They had designed the sidelight and door panels and commissioned us to build them which they would eventually install in their new handmade front door.
Unfortunately due to the effects of the virus COVID-19, substantial time delays were encountered and it took approximately 3 years for this commission to be completed and to be finally installed in their new home front door.
The five panels were constructed using zinc H round came edged with a flat Zinc border came. The glass used varied from English Muffle’s, Oceanside/Spectrum’s, Kokomo’s along with strategically placed 1 inch square bevels.
The first picture shows this very beautiful handmade door from inside their home.
The second picture below shows the panels with daylight coming through them.
The last photo is the outside view of this very elegant front door.

Earlier this fall our client wanted to give away a Dragonfly suncatcher to a customer.
This circle dragonfly is approximately 8 inches in diameter
For the wings we used a one of a kind blue Uroboros sheet of glass. In addition to the Glue Chip background we attached 3 red nuggets as requested by our client.
We edged it with a brass border came and attached a fine silver chain which completed this suncatcher.

We were asked by a friend who belongs to The Order of The Eastern Star, to make this Celtic Cross as a gift for the incoming Worthy Grand Matron. It measured approximately 7 inches wide by 10.5 inches high and was symbolic of the WGM’s emblems. We use black cathedral glass with clear granite for the Celtic knots.

This Sloth measures approximately 6 inches wide x 5.5 inches high. We attached a poppy flower to it as our granddaughter Poppy wanted to give it to her teacher, who was retiring from teaching last June and who loved Sloths.

For a gift we made this butterfly cluster in 2021. It measures approximately 5 inches wide by 7 inches high. We soldered a short piece of fine silver chain into the piece for hanging from a suction cup.
This pattern was a 1997 Spectrum Glass Pattern of the Month titled “Spring Flutters By” The original design had 9 butterflies, however we made changes to the design for 5 butterflies.
