Mark took the time to look at my portfolio, show me around the shop and encourage me in the craft. Since then, both Mark and Bill have become good friends. I’m forever indebted to them for the things I’ve learned by working with them, for the ways they’ve expanded my horizons, and for the ways they’ve just generously shared their lives with me.
It was Bill who told me I ought to go to one of Rick Glawson’s California Conclaves. That was quite an experience. I had no idea that gold leaf windows were being done like that anymore. The beauty that you can get with gold leaf on glass is really unique. I started learning more about doing gold leaf on glass, and looking for opportunities to sell it. I went to every Conclave until Rick died in 2003.
I like doing murals, too, when they come along, which is occasionally. The work seems to come in groups, though—murals for a while, then gold windows, then who knows what.
