Stained Glass Maestro!

"Earlier this year, we moved into a Prairie-style home that was built 35 years ago. The living room is true to the form, with a high ceiling and nice woodwork. There is a light well behind the wall in the frieze area. A skylight provides light from above. A light fixture provides illumination at night. The opening into the living room is 2’x6’. The original drawings called out a stained glass panel. We researched appropriate Prairie-style stained glass patterns that would complement the room. We searched for a stained glass artist to work with us; we looked all over the country. My wife found some of Dave’s work on line, and followed it back to his website. It so happened that Dave was participating at a craft fair in Brevard the very next day. We went to the event. We inspected the pieces he brought along. We were impressed with the tightness and craftsmanship of his work. We discussed what we had in mind. Dave came to our house to take precise measurements and get a feel for the work. He quoted a very fair price. He used our favored designs to create a unique full-size pattern in a very reasonable amount of time. We visited his studio to review the pattern and make adjustments. We made only a few minor changes. Dave had selected a variety of colors and textures of glass for us to choose from; he works very hard to get the best glass available and explained how the qualities of each would play out in our design. In a few weeks, Dave was ready to install the panel. When he took it out of his vehicle, I noticed that even though there were no thick lead lines in the work, the panel was very rigid. He and his helper then carefully installed the panel. The panel fits beautifully, with even borders all around. To say that we are thrilled with the panel is an understatement. Dave’s precision is remarkable. The fact that Dave was so thoughtful, helpful, and gracious throughout the process was an added bonus. The process and the purchase was one of the best shopping experiences we’ve ever had. Thank you Dave! "

"We wanted privacy for our front door window and transom. We discussed ideas with Dave as he measured the windows and checked out our decorating tastes. We then reviewed his design in his studio (as well as selected glass) and it was installed today. We are thrilled with this custom artwork! It is absolutely beautiful and will be enjoyed by everyone who comes to our door. The design allows privacy yet still lets in light. All in all, Dave made it a great experience and it was surprisingly affordable for such high quality craftsmanship. "
