Hi, I'm Ivey and I absolutely love to work with stained glass. I've finally gotten to a place in life with my kids grown that I can devote time to art.
I guess my first memory of stained glass was as a child in church. My families church had huge stained glass windows and I remember looking at them and how the sunlight came through them. Also I would look around at the size of the building and estimate our house and how much of our yard would fit inside. This is what kids think about in church, the rest was pretty boring.
I've always been into art and making things with my hands. Stained glass has become a craft for many , but I am an artisan. There are rules that good stained glass should follow. I have a blatant disregard for rules, my glass work is one of a kind, channelled from a place beyond verbal capacity.
My stained glass is made from upcycled materials and anything else I feel moved to include. The clear glass I use comes from antique window panes and has swirls, lines and bubbles. Yeah, I use alot of lead, but my stuff has captivating visual factors and structural integrity. I have pieces over 30 years old.
Many of these pieces are vintage and have cracks, rustic patina or other signs of age. These pieces are marked down, they're still beautiful so this could be your opportunity.
Also this is basically a collection of all the pieces I could find pictures of, if you're interested in what I have for sale go to our store page and check out the available art work and other sundries there.
