This is one of about ten stained glass 'star bursts' that my father made for me decades ago - they are suspended in various windows throughout the house, catching the sunlight, reflecting colors on the walls and floor, and reminding me of him, a generous and special man. Creating stained glass pieces was one of many things we shared - both of us fascinated by the property of glass, color, and texture - more skilled at the 'technical side' and less artistic than most 'creators'.

Art and science, similar to form and function, are best when balanced together. There's a bit of both in most everything - and, yet, we always seem to want to classify things as one or another. Naples, FL

    Glass is magical - its translucence, the possibility of vibrant colours.
