Mike first started creating his stained glass artwork in Texas in the 1970’s. These are some of his early work.
A real favorite, the Madonna and Child. This was lent to a friend of Mike’s, she, and the window, had vanished. If anyone has seen it, please contact us. This is an award winning window.
Another missing work, we’d love to know where it is!
The photos directly above were made for a resturant in Tallahasse, FL, the owner died before the order was completed and so he gave the completed work to the owners widow. The resturant was never built. We have no idea what happened to the windows.
