I have lived in Burlington for over thirty years. I raised my two sons (ages 24 & 30) here. I graduated from UNC-G. I started making stained glass in 2001. I took lessons for many months from Lisa at The Glass Angel in downtown Burlington. I made items from patterns for a few years then started making mosaic stained glass crosses. I began making my stained glass crosses as gifts to family and friends for weddings, first communions, birthdays, and various special occasions.
I see my stained glass crosses much like life… messy and when filled with faith… creates something beautiful. I continue making stained glass because it is relaxing and peaceful. It gives me time with God. The time I spend creating calms my mind and soul and helps me center my life around God. This is a way for me to share my faith with others. My crosses are a way to remind us that God is always with us. I will donate 10% from every cross sale to charity.
