I'm back from vacation in New England and my Etsy shop is back up and running! My shop saw a good amount of traffic over the holiday season, but there are still plenty of pieces for sale! www.etsy.com/shop/NebulaGlassw…

It's been an inexcusably long time since I've done a glass feature, so time for a double. Enjoy these beautiful pieces!

I am a stained glass artisan currently settling down in the Austin, Texas area. I am slowly developing my own techniques for fused/slumped glass as well, and would classify myself as a moderate fuser at this time. :)

I DO NOT USE ANY PATTERN THAT IS NOT 100% BY MY OWN HAND. PLEASE DO NOT ASK ME "WHAT PATTERN" I USED. IT IS INSULTING.

Franklin Pierce University Class of 2010 graduate, Bachelor's in Fine Arts (concentration of stained glass)

I am CLOSED for commissions until further notice. :)

Other than glass, I'm a fairly easy going individual who tries not to take anything too seriously. My sense of humor is very far on the inappropriate side, and I enjoy having no filter. I look forward to a time when I can work with glass full-time, but have accepted that I'll probably be retired when that happens. :/

Lookit the gallery! :3

Artist Statement

Our dependence on light as human beings is what draws me to stained glass.

An image in reality to me is an image that can be transposed into glass and be interpreted the way that I see things. Instead of intensifying colors that may not be realistic with a computer aid I can permanently join together the color with the image I first saw; and in doing so truly make it my own.

Each window has the potential to yield a new challenge or a new idea that can be explored in any number of ways. The glass is my puzzle, but each piece can have any number of shapes and it is up to me to decide how they should fit together.

It never ceases to amaze me how many surprises a window can generate. From pieces that I thought would cut well and broke multiple times to the compatibility of colors next to one another on the board versus when they are finally illuminated, each surprise is a challenge and a learning experience that can only be gained by plunging into the project headfirst.

There is something amazing about how much different a color can look when there is a light source giving it life. Each sheet of glass that I work with has it's own glow that can only be made stronger and more intense by joining it with another color. This, in turn, gives meaning to the existence of the piece.

I will continue to interpret images into glass as long as I am capable. Every new day and experience intensifies my drive to see the world in glass, and it can only grow stronger as life goes on.
