    I have done leaded glass windows and copper foiled lamps for years and years. Originally it was taught to me by a master leaded glass gentlemen who was trying to help
    me move on through what we now call ptsd post vietnam. This gentleman was also a world class monument sculpture. I am forever in his debt.

    Bob, you have been hiding your talent under a bushel (as the old saw goes.) I am delighted to see your windows. I am drawn to the first one shown, and then the last one. But my favorite is the first.

    Thank you for that my friend. I can sit and ponder that window for hours.

    One piece of work by the monument sculptor I owe so much to. This was donated to the City of Pacific Grove, California on the central california coast. Pacific Grove is home to migrating monarch butterflies. His work is
    world wide.

    Beautiful artwork! Love stained glass. I live in a 1920's house and at some time an older gentleman lived here that did stained glass so I have some very nice pieces throughout the house on various windows and built in cabinets. Even the walk-in garage door is stained glass!!

    I have done many variations on that over the years with many different shades of glass. Seen in the proper light it should create a bit of an optical illusion in the form of individual stacked cubes. All of these photos I put up do not do justice to the windows.

    Thought I would add a picture of one of my lamps that stays home next to my favorite chair. I did this one about 20 years ago. It is copper foil soldered joints on the lamp and the base is mahogany.
