Wine Country

This 20″ ball surface vessel is spherical in shape and meant for window or back-lit display.

The deep grenadine transparent glass contains mysterious streaks of darker pigment; the clear band running through the work’s mid-section contains fused black speckles.

The drama of this surface is enhanced by the addition of band-like impressions made during fusing on its back surface.

Did anyone say Greg is a “drama queen”?

Enjoy a rich glass of your favourite red with this unique enhancement to your decor!

For your convenience, Gotham Glassworks offers several models of display stands at additional cost.

Goth Cube Chandelier

SOLD

A stunning and definitely one-of-a-kind stained glass “chandelier”, Greg used the copper foil method to create 4 unique panels making up the “cube”, suspended by its custom steel framework.

This work is suited well for a high-ceiling dining room, foyer or lobby space.

Goth Cube Chandelier measures 11.5″ x 11.5″ x 20.25″ (5.0 feet total height including metal support structure).

Eastern Delight

NOT FOR SALE

This 21″ diameter circular window panel glimmers and dances in the morning sun, with a clear beveled inset to allow for visibility of the gardens behind it.

This is a piece from my personal collection, and here’s why: I made this for my Mother, which she wanted me to have back when she passed away from old age some years ago. She loved looking at this piece in the morning hours, when the sun would shine through her east-facing windows.

The traditional English “Muffle Glass” as it’s called, (the amber colour) sparkled luminously.The beveled clear glass added elegance and transparency. I remember toiling at my then glass store and knowledge source, Glowing Panes Glassworks in Thornhill (northern suburb of Toronto), to bend the 1″ wide zinc border channel to a perfect circle!

So it’s not for sale – sorry. But … I’m happy to make something for you that celebrates the elements of this design’s delight!

River Flows Through It

Greg made this window panel as the third in the series of gothic church-peaked themed pieces.  It is smaller than the first two, measuring 23 1/2″ x 55 1/2″.

Most notably, it has been selected as a feature branding piece for a King Township community organization for 2009: find out here.

Gothic Panel No. 1

(1999)

This is the first of three in the series of gothic church-peaked themed pieces, measuring 31.5″ wide x 69″ high.

The calming colours of the depths of the ocean slowly give way to the hotter, passionate shades of the sun and sky.
