In 2008 we were asked by our master woodworker craftsman and friend Bob Bryce of Innisfail to make a stained glass insert for some Cremation Urns that he was making. The first one shows the Alberta Rose with a light blue sky glass with the solder being left silver, inserted into a light finished oak urn. Notice the exquisite dove tail construction and beautiful finish of the urn.
The next picture is the same Alberta Rose design, however we used a sunset glass along with black patina finish for the solder. Unfortunately Bob Bryce no longer creates masterpieces in his woodworking studio.

This Rose Vase Panel was a wedding gift that a client commissioned us to make for them in 2006. We used some very beautiful Bullseye glass for the rose along with Uroboros glass for the boarder spaced with 1 inch square bevels.

In 2009 we made this for a client who’s wife was from Japan. Upon her arrival in Canada she fell in love with the beauty of our Dandelions. He asked us to make a stained glass Dandelion in a pottery ring that he had made for us, to commemorate her appreciation of the Dandelion, which she now enjoys year round.

Springtime is just around the corner and lots of prairie folks are thinking about their plans for beautiful flower gardens. Of course sunflowers are just what the doctor ordered to brighten the lands.
With spring arrival lots of sunflower seeds are planted, which transcend into beautiful sunflowers with their huge seed pods. You can enjoy this beauty year round with a stained glass sunflower. This is one we made in March 2016.

In 2010 we made this as a gift for The Order of Eastern Star in Montana USA.
The Bitterroot is the state flower for the State of Montana, which was adopted on February 27, 1895. Our sun catcher measures about 7 x 7 inches.
