whittling away over here!

Here’s a panel I’ve been working on for a couple weeks now. It’s my interpretation of the crazy & wonderful painting above the bar at The Rite Spot. We’re having a group show there in a couple months organized by @greermcgettrick and every piece in the show will pay homage to that painting. If you haven’t been to The Rite Spot, you’re missing out.

Stained Glass Night Light Making With Natalie

Made our first stained glass night light test run today and it felt great! To top off the excitement it was Natalie’s first stained glass project and design! There was quite a bit of leftover glass from my previous panel so we had a lot to work with. So pleased with the way it turned out. Funny how some smaller accomplishments can feel more significant than larger ones. In other exciting news I plan on making a grip of these for Fort Mason Renegade Craft Fair in November. Stay tuned!!


Soldering Exhaust System

OK everyone, I’m really dang excited about my new soldering exhaust set up! If you’re not interested in stained glass soldering exhaust systems I would definitely skip this entire post. If you’re interested in setting up your own soldering station at home, you should read this! I spent a lot of time researching the perfect exhaust and I couldn’t be happier. I decided to go with this set up below, all available on Amazon (I linked each image to their amazon page). It was really important to me get the hobby kit extension because it allowed me to make the gap out my window smaller. The plastic hobby hose is extremely sturdy and holds it shape well. It was definitely more expensive than just a regular aluminum foil vent but I will be using it often and I think it was worth the extra couple bucks. I also chose to go with the grower exhaust fan because it is really quiet, can be taken apart easily and has a built in base making it a bit sturdier than the other ones i’ve seen online.


New Day, New Studio!

Things are finally coming together here in my new studio. Should be officially up and running by Monday! Looking forward to finishing up some commissions i’ve been waiting to start as well as a group show around the corner :) Thanks for all the support everyone!


Spilling The Beans

Here’s my most recent panel - I’ve been keeping this one under wraps because it was a surprise BUT i just spilled the beans! This panel references a quick lil sketch I finished a few months back.
