Panels May/June 2021

Many of our panels are designed using Neil’s signature stained glass style. Each panel has striking elements that draw the eye. With large shards of broken glass and glass pebbles as accents, the organically textured glass elegantly surrounds it. On the smaller panels, the frame may be “broken” which further accentuates the organic and fluid look of the panel.

Bamboo Chimes: Behind the Design

We have been making kiln worked wind and breeze chimes for many years and wanted to add a flameworked chime to our selection. The design of this chime was inspired by some of our travels to Asia where bamboo is seen everywhere including many areas of calmness and serenity.

Hanscomb Glass and Bullfrog Power

There is no doubt that the process of making our wonderful creations requires  energy. To bend, twist and blow ornaments we use propane gas. To slump, fuse, and anneal glass work we fire electric kilns to some pretty high temperatures. While constructing our modern stained glass windows and panels, electricity is there to power the soldering irons...and to keep everyone safe while working and creating we run ventilation and extraction fans.
