We were asked if we would donate a piece of our work to The Central Alberta Constituencies – Wildrose – Classic – Golf – Tournament held on July 18, 2013 at Alberta Springs Golf Course located near Red Deer Alberta as a silent auction fun raising item.
We made this oval piece highlighted with Spectrum’s Pearl Opal Blue Yonder for the water, along with their Thunderhead for mountains and Inferno for the sunset sky. For the tree we used Uroboros Heringbone Granite Ripple with a Kokomo green amber surrounding the water. As the golf course is located close to Sylvan Lake we called this “Lake Sunset”

This Sprint Racing Car was made many years ago from a photo for our son Greg who wanted to give it as a gift to one of his racing friends in Edmonton, Alberta. The center of the wheels was made using sheet foil with a thin layer of solder which gives the chrome look. Greg helped to complete the car by adding the lettering.

Some 10 plus years ago we had a client commission us to make from a photograph a stained glass panel of a stock race car.
Flory did the art work on the car and together we came up with the panel design from the photograph, it was a neat commission that our client gave as a gift.

Over the years we have made a few of these, in fact a similar one hangs in our home and it was the first piece of stained glass that Bob made some 14 years ago.
