This window was done especially for a frog lover. I had glass that specifically lent itself to this window. Beautiful greens with lots of character that brought this little swimmer to life. The glass looks different at different times of the day.
This commission was a gift that was to represent the Kolbe Index numbers of the receiver. I wanted to incorporate the beads and ratios of the colours to represent the Kolbe numbers of 3294.

A Coat of Arms for a Welsh, Fencing Artist.

Original commission and design was for two close friends. I crisscrossed the branches, roots and trunks to represent the friendship. They were so interconnected they would finish each others sentences thus the overlapping and interactions.
Two 3′ x 3′ windows with the cycle of the life of the poppy. The Life starts dark red and gets lighter as it goes through the cycle. The two windows are mirror images of each other with only the centre pieces of the moon and sun being the difference between the two windows. One Window Up Close
