Spirit Glass Windows

  1. 1. What you are about to see represents decades of collecting, washing, sorting, creating and presenting.<br />I believe art engages, inspires, comforts and, in some cases, heals. This work comes not from me but through me in my heart and soul. <br />I also believe we are stewards of the earth and should recycle, reuse and repurpose whenever possible.<br />

  20. 20. Recycled Materials<br />With the exception of the paint and fixative, all material used in this work is recycled, including the windows.<br />Natural items such as wood, stone, shell, bone and feathers were collected on the beaches of Maine and Massachusetts, as was the sea glass and pottery.<br />All other materials, including stained and hand blown glass shards were headed for the landfill.<br />
  21. 21. Intent<br />Spirit Glass works are intended to engage the imagination and are especially conducive for places of meditation, healing and peace. <br />They aspire to speak to and uplift the spirits of the viewers.<br />Although some have been commissioned for private residences, which I am happy to do, I feel they serve their highest purpose as “public art.”<br />On A Blue Moon installed<br />
