I was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area and from a very early age loved to work with wood. Also from an early age, I was fascinated by the stained glass windows seen in those days mostly in churches.
Since my two passions were fine woodworking and stained glass, a few years ago I decided to combine my woodworking and glass art, the result being pieces such as I'm doing now.
After living in Hawaii for the last 19 years and running a successful business there, our too-quickly-growing-up grandkids were becoming more and more a long-distance part of their lives, and it became essential that we all be closer together. After much soul-searching, in late 2011 we relocated to the beautiful California Sonoma County Redwoods, along the Russian River.
It is now December, 2012, and my new woodworking shop and glass studio are in full swing. I've still got some work in Hawaii galleries and now in Sonoma County galleries, as well.
My woodworking shop includes all of the usual power tools that a woodworking nut accumulates over some 55 years in the business. The glass studio is a separate building behind our home and is a cozy workspace that is just big enough to accommodate a large inventory of glass, a generous work table, a glass bandsaw, grinder and other tools, and, of course, a great music system.
I do the pieces as seen on my Web site, plus commission work, too. I'll take on residential installations of art-glass panels and also custom wood-framed, back-lighted art-glass displays.
Life is good here on “The River!”
