My practice

No art form takes its spiritual role as seriously as stained glass. Not only are images created through illustration, they naturally come alive through light. Whether light changes softly or with bold force, the images respond with moody transformations of tone and color; controlled by no human influence. The illusion of a supernatural drama unfolds.

It was this combination of these spiritual forces – light, color, texture and movement – that stimulated my interest in glass over 35 years ago. Whether l am working on the restoration or creation of an ecclesiastical window, a design for a residential or commercial client, or a glass sculpture for display. I revel in the knowledge that each piece of glass takes its own breath and lives its own personality and spirituality.

As an artist dedicated to quality craftsmanship, l would appreciate an opportunity to provide you with a product at the level of excellence you are welcome to expect from Weissmann Glassworks. My goal at Weissmann Glassworks is to provide your studio, committee or individuals with my expert skills and knowledge.
