Thank you for visiting WEST OF THE MOON STUDIOS. I specialize in Stained and Leaded,Lampwork, fused, and hot and cold sculptured glass. Jewelry and metalwork come in a close second in my love for art and craftsmanship. Many of my pieces are Lampwork and Sculptural and run from simple frit to Floral and Fish.
Over the years I have experimented with many glass, frit, and enamel combinations. Sometime you will see simple, frank, frightening, and unique in my pieces. My art changes as I change. My moods and feeling effect the way I see the world around me. Things you see today may grow into something else tomorrow.
All fused glass is annealed in each firing. Many of my pieces have 3 and 4 layers of glass placed over each other. All glass when fired wants to be 1/4" thick, so no matter how many layers, it will thin to a 1/4"when fired to a full fused firing. All of the pieces are shaped and many are drilled and then fire polished. More »
