color me green...

This is absolutely fabulous!

Glass artist Daniel Maher creates these Graveyard pieces from glass originally destined to be serving bowls, platters, goblets, lids, jars. etc. He carefully selects glass with strong prismatic qualities or with interesting letters and images to serve as the focal point for these stained glass windows. Each piece is individually handcrafted as a unique work of art. These one of a kind windows range from $750 - $1000 per square foot depending on the size and complexity of the piece.

Imagine being a glass artist. How amazing and how fragile everything would be...

I just love stained glass.I live in a Victorian house where there are some original pieces of stained glass. I have three friends who make stained glass pieces and even I have made a couple of pieces myself.
I love this, as it's made out of recycled glass and is my favourite colour of green.

That is absolutely gorgeous and must be wonderful when the sun hits it. I love glass, in 2007 when I went to Venice and Murano - the glass was unbelievably beautiful (and unbelievably expensive) and I spent days looking at all the beautiful pieces.
