Leaded Glass Steamship in Daylight Leaded Glass Steamship at Night

Ocean Liner in Leaded Glass.   On the left is the window as seen in daylight from the inside of our foyer. On the right is the window seen at night from the outside. The time of the design is 1934. the Ocean Liner is probably the Ile de France and the scene is the French Line pier along the Hudson River in lower Manhattan.

The window is quite square. The converging angles are "parallax effect" in the camera. Most of the glass is hand-blown Lamberts. About 30" tall by 20" wide.  A.D. 2000.



Iris Daffodil by Day

An Iris appears above left; a Daffodil to the right.  We live in an older home from the 1920's styled "Arts and Crafts."  The house had too few doors so we installed French doors between the foyer and the living room. I made the glass for these doors.  There are three panels in each door.

Trillium


Above is the Trillium—perhaps the most successful of the designs. You can see the beauty of the glass in this DETAIL .

Petunia


A Petunia. Perhaps the most naïve of the panels.

Tulip Tulip at Night


Tulip by day and by night.   Each flower is paired in a mirror image but no two are the same color.


Lily by Day Lily at Night

Lily by day (left) and Lily by night. The oriental rugs show to advantage here; but it was probably a mistake to install stained glass on interior doors. Very seldom does natural light hit them in just the right way!





Leaded Glass—design after Vermeer

This window looks out on the porch from the living room. The West Wind, Zephyrus, fills the ship's sails. Seagulls soar on the side panels. When it was finished, and I was polishing it, it slipped out of my hand and fell. I had to replace 47 broken panes of glass.

The lead came design resembles a leaded glass window that Vermeer used frequently in his domestic scenes.
