During the summer of 2011 I learned the ancient technique of glass painting, using a kiln, the same style you see in old churches... I have had a ball with it and am making new pieces continually. Below is a "Big Blue" butterfly which I have hanging from a jewelry-size chain. More hanging butterflies to come... I will be making a swallowtail but I also have a Monarch which will be at the gallery this summer.
Below are some of my glass mosaic jars... perfect for candles on the deck in the summer...
My first Madonna
... These are my painted Monarch butterflies (on brass posts, great for gardens). These actually can withstand a Maine winter, believe it or not!
