Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Solder

I've been preparing to teach Beginning Stained Glass online for the great folks at CuriousMondo.com and I figured it might be nice to explain the "why" behind some of the things I choose to do.

One of the things I use most is 60/40 (tin-lead) solder. I didn't think "because I like it" would be a reasonable response if asked so I did what any reasonable person would do and asked Google.

Announcing, Live Stream and On Demand "Beginning Stained Glass - Foil Method"

It seems like every event I do someone asks if I teach stained glass classes and up until now I've always said, "sorry, no" and recommended one of my colleagues who does teach. But that's all about to change! I'm teaching an online course!

Beginning Stained Glass - Foil Method

I'm excited to be talking about glass and showing how to create a foil project with the wonderful people at CuriousMondo.com

The Tree of Life

The Challenge: Enhance a piece of metal wall decor with glass

That was the request, and this is the original piece of art:

It had a "lip" in the back that would be perfect to act as a frame to support the glass so I said I'd be happy to give it a try, and brought it home with me.

I had a vision of how the final piece would look so all I had to do was make that vision become a reality.

Final Installation: Hold Your Breath!

After much anticipation, and a quick onsite repair, the day finally arrived for the big reveal.

Prior the grand opening and ribbon cutting at The Quilter's Lodge these two panels were hidden from view with brown paper.

But when the paper came off and the crowd oooh'd and aaaah'd, all the months of work was paid off.
