Grenadine Transom Window Series

(2011)

It’s been a while since I’ve published any of my work!

Which is not to say I’ve not been busy, for I have. In fact, I’ve had the busiest Winter since Gotham Glassworks re-opened.

I’m happy to report that I’ve finally been able to make some art for the home I share with my wife Tracy. This series for our dining room compliments a two-tone green series I produced for our front living room.

We’ve been living in Schomberg, Ontario for 5 years now and although I’ve used our space for display and many photography sessions, I’ve wanted to find some time to put an artistic footprint on this unique place we call ours.

The front portion of our house that faces Main Street dates from the 1860’s (the “rear” original portion, housing our kitchen, second bathroom, laundry room, master bath and bedroom, from the 1840’s).

Introducing contemporary fused glass to a heritage home is tricky business, for we’re big on respecting the history of this place. We intend this art to be permanent, residing here long after Tracy and I eventually move on to other pastures, decades from now if we are fortunate.

We think this series introduces a contemporary charm to an otherwise very traditional space, and they marry wonderfully. The grenadine glass compliments the traditional green and red wallpaper.

The panels hang in front of the windows, allowing air to circulate and negating any chances of moisture and mold accumulation (if this information is new to you just ask me).

Multiple fused glass techniques combine to create the visual interest apparent in these pieces. The effects I use add sparkle and three-dimensional intrigue, most apparent in the late afternoon when sunlight beans through them (though more subtle and entertaining throughout the rest oft eh day with indirect light).

Each panel measures 24″ x 12″. My kiln can accommodate sizes of up to 3 feet by 2 feet for any one panel. (Panels can be joined with zinc or lead came channel for larger installations).

Do you have spaces that can be enhanced by art? Talk to me.

Green Transom Window Series

(2011)

This 3-panel series really adds interest in the forms of texture and colour to our front living room.

It’s a relaxing, “green” inspired room and my wife Tracy wanted these pieces to add to this feeling.

Who am I to argue?

This series for our living room compliments a rich grenadine series I produced for our dining room.

Multiple fused glass techniques combine to create the visual interest apparent in these pieces.

Each panel in this case is 24″ x 12″

Hot N Spicy

Be sure to check out “The Making Of …” this work.

The name says it all for this stunning 3 feet by 2 feet fused art panel!

These photos don’t pay justice to the striking colour depth of the red, orange and marigold opalescent glass used in this work. Black and select large coloured frit enhances the fissures for a textured effect.

Note on mounting/hanging: The artist recommends this panel  be mounted on a wall to create a “floating” effect, using one of various hardware methods.  Greg does not commit fused panels to a mounting method at time of completion; in consultation with the purchaser he will utilize a chosen method that best suits his/her design and viewing preferences.

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).

Morning Smile

(2009)

You may recognize the Aventurine Green and cathedral green glasses from Resisting Conformity, used here with a different flare and with a chrystalline finishing effect providing a whimsical translucence.

Morning Smile is 13″ wide x 34″ high.
