During the last few years I have completed several Stained Glass windows for homes around the region.
Nothing is as exciting as the day of installation!
When designing a window for the client I have many consultation meetings to “look inside the clients head” to determine their “vision” of this special, very personal, addition to their home.
The measurements are taken, the computer drawing is made, and once the customer confirms satisfaction, the file is sent to a printing company to plot the actual size, and then the template is fitted to the actual window. Once size is confirmed the glass is chosen and the window is built on the template to ensure correct sizing.
Then the day comes when the Stained Glass window is set in place.
After all the hard work I get to see the look on the clients face, which shows me that I have gotten it right!
This picture shows one of those special moments!
In addition to windows, I love to experiment with glass combinations and processes in my kiln; creating jewelry, bowls, wall art, garden art, and to combine the glass with bicycle parts to see what I can dream up!
Come on in to the Fenelon Station Gallery to see some of my works of art!
Anne-Marie will be in the gallery next on the 26th July.
