Fused Architectural 9 of the 26 windows designed and fired at The Glass Studio, LLC for St. Vincent's East chapel in Birmingham, Alabama. Each 3 x 4 foot panel contains sheet glass of bright colors on a background of highly-textured clear glass. Areas within the sheet glass have been sand-blasted

Architectural Fused Glass DetailDetail of the window at the entry of St. Vincent's chapel East in Birmingham, Alabama. Each piece of glass is cut by hand. The circular glass "jewels" are created by firing coarse glass frit (pieces of glass) into circular refractory molds and then laying them out into the window for the final firing.
The UAB Freedom SculptureA collaboration with Birmingham sculptor Brad Morton, this 3-story sculpture hangs at the UAB Hospital North Tower Pavillon. It consists of more than 100 glass bird-like shapes of varying sizes, some glass, some metal and some combine both materials. Each "bird" hangs on its own swivel and all hang from a custom-made 14-foot aluminum ring. All are backlit by the lobby skylight.
Custom Carved and Fused ElementsThis architectural installation in Mountain Brook, Alabama involves "waves" of color combined with a central "wave" of butterfly wing components. Hidden among all of the hundreds of butterfly "wings" are a few full butterflies, offering the chance to examine the piece and find them.
Kiln-Carved Glass, EnabledThe National Computer Forensic Institute in Hoover, Alabama commissioned this large-scale, glass computer circuit board installation utilizing plate glass slumped onto the design and then accented with opaque enamels.
Fused Glass Bar TopCustom-designed for a residence , this bar top had 8 layers of glass, encasing a design of glass lines and squares inside 1” of art glass, fused into one piece at 1800 degrees (F).
Fused Glass Bar Top DetailThe detail shows custom curved glass "lines", created to precisely match the custom curve of the glass edge. The dots are created using small pieces of glass called frit.
Fused Glass Aspen BowlThis bowl, created for a client who lives in Colorado, combines glass fusing and carving with sandblasting. The tree shapes are sandblasted out of white glass, and carved with the unique design found on Aspen trees. The carving is then filled with contrasting, darker, glass to create "Aspen Eyes”.

Carved, Fused Slumped SculptureThree-part sculpture hangs a home outside of Birmingham, Alabama. The design was based on the organic form of the wisteria blossom and created in colors selected by the client. Each of the three pieces went through multiple firings, the final being placing the sculpture onto a mold that gave it the gentle relief curves and undulations.
Framework Glass Painting DetailThe detail photo shows the interaction of the different color "brush strokes". The lines are actually interlaced and layered, giving a feel of depth to the glass “painting".
