Today I stayed home, drew an old napping dog named Sparky & finally found a home for some stained glass my dad made. The bottom tulip piece was from an old building on Chicago's South Side that he re-leaded and the piece above was made with antique leaded glass. I am very happy to have these here with me in San Francisco.
A few months ago I was lucky enough to jump in on one of my dads projects. He is an artist with insane ideas, and over the years has created extremely beautiful things. His most recent project was creating a custom steel stained glass awning to put on the front of our cabin (which he rents out by the way). We shuffled over 500 pounds of stained glass from Chicago to Green Lake County, Wisconsin and spent 3 days installing with the help of my dads good friends. My dad hand cut each individual piece of stained glass to fit. The good news is, if I'm ever in a bind and find myself needing another stained glass awning, I'll know how to make one!
