Pieces of glass are like little bits of Heaven. Follow my growth, my learning curve, my trail of bandaid wrappers as I foil and solder my way through retirement.

There are those that would say that most teenagers do not think clearly. I'm here to tell you differently.
Both my granddaughters are very artistic. When she was 13, Serena drew a sketch that fascinated me, both because it was thoughtful and because it was different. I asked her if I could use her artwork to create a stained glass panel.
"Nona, why do you even ask?" She said.
"Because artist to artist, I need your permission to use your original artwork, even though it may look a little differently when it's done. It's still your concept, and because it's the polite thing to do."
Insert teen eye roll here.
So three years later, I managed to get it done. I used teal green waterglass, dark blue waterglass, clear baroque glass, and brown streaky granite glass. Then I soldered some steel bicycle gears on the back side. The style is definitely all Serena. I'm just the glass cutter.
