Although Ross and I plan to feature a broad range of artwork in our gallery, we will continue to pursue our first love which is stained glass.

While exploring the gallery, you may see Ross or I working on a stained glass commission or a repair in the studio. 

Because we also sell a vast array of stained glass and stained glass supplies, you may also see other artisans shopping for inspiration and creative treasures.

"When you wish upon a star..."

Kristi Halva, blossoming mosaic artist from Lodi, who combines her glass choices and cut glass pieces as if she were using a paint brush from a Picasso painting has created wonderful stars that are just the right size for any room of the house.(or possibly the entry way to house!)

Star Mosiac

Steve Wilson,  a metal worker from Herald has brought us words of wisdom, and playful words as well, that will last us all through the year! These are also perfect for over any door of the house, or any wall, inside or out!!


Diane Kennedy and Robert Lapp are exhibiting both functional and art pieces for the holiday show.

Diane, who is known mostly for her Raku work, has been working at the wheel for well over 20 years.  She brings her  experience and her creative expression to every piece.

Robert Lapp who is relatively new to the potters wheel brings to the gallery a variety of shapes and styles, both functional and decorative. Robert who is in his first year at UC Davis is taking his high school art lessons to a whole new level.


Ekphrastic Expressions by Janet Manalo
and Suzanne Bruce

Ekphrastic Expressions

Suzanne Bruce, poet, and Janet Manalo, artist, have collaborated to create "Voices Beyond the Canvas", honoring the ancient form of ekphrasis. Their innovative approach to poetry inspired by art has been beautifully captured in this book.

Suzanne Bruce likes writing poetry that will elicit individual responses or reactions by providing a setting or feeling where the reader can then take their own interpretive journey.

Janet Manalo expresses her artistry through various mediums; acrylics, watercolor, collage, assemblage, textiles, photography and computer graphics. She manipulates canvas and other surfaces to create richly dimensional works of art.

The powerful variety of poetry matches the intriguing variety of artwork in this book as well as the combined works available in mat and frame. It is quite evident that the poet and artist have taken the verbal and visual forms of expression to a new level.

Suzanne's and Janet's individual voices come together to make a marvelous duet.  


Ross and I wish you and yours 

 "Best of the Season!"
