First , a brief history, I took my first stained glass course in Minneapolis 30 years ago. I thoroughly enjoyed it, and pursued it. You could say that I was bitten by the stained glass bug. I set up my first workshop in my basement in Minneapolis, the lamps accumulated, and quickly took over the space then the attic soon was full as well. As time progressed, I began to do shows, like the Edina art fair, Loring Park art fair, and others. Commissions followed, and business started to improve. In 2000 my wife, Victoria and I moved to St. Peter, with the intent of opening a studio. After soldering my 17th lamp, I had honed my skills to the point that I understood the intricacies of soldering and broadened our horizons into windows, wall hangings, and slumping glass. The patience and diligence
required was a natural fit for my personality, which flowed into a further 150 some lamps, as well as sunbursts, wall hangings, and windows. This passion and devotion led to the construction of an all purpose studio and workshop. My glass work has been influenced by my world travels. From Africa and the pacific, to the cobbled streets of Europe, from the mountains of South America to the frozen waters of Antartica, I have continually collected inspiration. Feel free to stop by the studio and see the glass and photo's from my trips around the world, for yourself!
