Q- What size are the glass portraits ?
A- Copperfoiled pieces really have no size restrictions, however I prefer to work in fused glass and the size is dictated by the size of compatible backing glass. All portraits on the website are 18″ x 24″ except Ezra Pound which is 11″ x 14″. I find the 3 x 4 ratio to work best.
Q- What is the timeline for ordering a glass piece?
A- Any work on the website without a listed owner is only time limited by packing and shipping.
Because of the complexity of the work, commissions require 40-60 hours plus 2-3 trips through the kiln which translates to 2-3 weeks plus shipping time. Pieces will be completed on a first come first served basis.
Q- Where do the patterns come from ?
A- All work is my design . Portraits are generally from photographs.
Q- Is your work only available in the categories listed in the gallery ?
A-Over the years I have done commissions with many different subjects and techniques and I am always open to new challenges.
Q- Where would you suggest hanging the glass?
A- I design for full bright sunlight so west, south or east windows work best.
Some commissions have been installed in interior walls with backlighting and have been very effective.
