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. The church my family went to 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 except for retaining structural integrity. My glass work is one of a kind, channelled from a place beyond verbal capacity.
My works are 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 as well as structural integrity. I have pieces over 30 years old.
Many of the vintage pieces have cracks from poor storage and abuse, rustic patina or other signs of age. These pieces are marked down, they're still beautiful so this could be your opportunity.
This is basically a collection of 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.
If you have any of my older work not pictured here can you send me a pic of it? Thank you !
And below are some pics I'd had up before discovering the gallery function. Decided to leave them up for now because I like them. They have captions in the Gallery but too lazy to put them here right now, maybe later. Of course each piece has a story or three.
