A super special project.  The heirloom family bible box.  A treasure for generations to come.  Her favorite passage is ‘Jesus With The Children’
ANY design seen on glass within this site has been built using crushed glass.  The crushed glass is layered and kiln fired to melt together and blend into the final picture.  These are Old Master techniques that Museums seek.  Mary’s work is collected in Museums and in Private collections across the country.
Do not mistake them for hobby craft painting as seen on stem ware or glasses.  It is not the same process.
