Florentine Glass

Utilizing the language of wire, we create softly curving, graceful wire components that allow a move away from lead lines as visual elements. Cutting multiple pieces of glass to convey one message opens up windows to the possibility of presenting a totally new yet logical direction
for the stained glass.

The beautiful 12 gauge jewelry grade brass wire has a soft 14 karat brushed gold hue. It ages gently, developing beautiful soft chocolate undertones, with rose gold highlights.

I started out my early handcrafting career as a sculptural wire craftsman, but years later had one of those wonderful 3:00 a.m. EUREKA!!! experiences, realizing I could use my hand sculpted wire within, on and around my stained glass, not only  as a substructure, but also as a beautiful flowing design element.
