Well, everything went like clockwork -- no problems whatsoever.
It's hard to get a good picture of it as the light is coming from the other
side. It really looks beautiful. Thank you so much for doing such a great
job for us-- we are very happy.
Perhaps we will work again with each other who knows. I am a house person

Hi Rick,
Thanks for checking in. Yes, at long last the windows are in... It ended
up being DECEMBER before the contractor got them in, and they still haven't
painted the external stucco where the windows were reframed, but from inside
they are FABULOUS! I will try to take some photos to do them justice. The
bathroom hasn't been painted yet, but the stairwell came out perfect. I'll
try to shoot it this weekend (so there will be plenty of light) and email
them to you early next week.
I have spread your name to everyone who comes in, and I have a friend who
will be calling to have a beautiful bathroom accented by one of your

Rick, Thanks for your email message. We were on the island of Maui this past week (2/14-21) and had a great time on our visit. We stayed up in the Napili area (just a short walk from Kapalua). We are very pleased with the window/your work. The window gives us a lot more privacy, yet it allows natural light into the house which is what we wanted. Thank you. Take care, Diane

Dear Rick,
After looking carefully at the many wonderful photos, I have changed my mind. I don't want to order one window to use at this time; I want to wait, and order windows for the entire house! Or, rather, for as many windows as I can afford. We are planning to build in a few years; perhaps I can be buying windows during the interim? I especially like the photos in the "bonus link", in addition to the ones I listed earlier. Are there additional photos of how these have been used in various rooms? That would really help me in my planning of this 'dream house'.
Many thanks, Linda

Dear Rick, I may be moving and if I do I would like for you to make me another window for over the front doors. The one thing I hate to leave behind is my new window. There are no words to tell you how much I love it.............................................. I hope you had a very merry Christmas and a great new year. I will keep in touch.
Miss talking to you. Alice

Rick, The window is in and it looks unbelievable! We couldn't be more pleased......in fact, it looks so good that now the glass that surrounds the front door looks really lame (see pic #2794) and we would like you to create something to replace what we have currently....I noticed on your website that you had done the roses for someone else's front door sidelights (I don't know if that is the correct terminology) and we think it would look fantastic in our house (for both the transom and the sidelights).....what do you think? Thanks,

comments: This was the most interesting website I've seen on stained glass! Your introduction was beautiful. Good job!

Hi Rick- We finally got a chance to see the front door today. It looks great. The iridescent glass adds to the whole clear/textured theme. That was a great recommendation. We have already received a couple of complements and I think the window will look even better when the door is painted black. Thanks again for all your work. Once the door is painted, I will let you know so you can take a final photo. Barry

Beautiful - as usual! Your work is really superb, and I see that you seem to be busy all the time now, so business is good. We were back east this summer to see our family, including our newborn fourth grandaughter. All's well here, and we're going on a trip to the Galapagos in December. The window you made for us is absolutely gorgeous - I'm thrilled every time I look at it, and it's the first thing in the house that garners comments and compliments from our guests. Have a wonderful holiday season, and warmest regards from both of us.

Rick, The window looked great at night when I got home, but looks fantastic in the day. We stared at it for a long time... I am esp. glad that we chose to use so many types of green, but they all blend nicely together to add such depth and warmth -- the flecked green glass is a real winner. Nothing about the window is boring - even each of the clear glass pieces stand out with their own designs, yet work so well together - we love the wavy glass for the circles. The raised lead lines, esp. the double line that you used around the inner circles, show so much craftsmanship and detail. We will be enjoying this piece of art for a very long time and love it as a beautiful addition to our home. Thanks much Rick for your time and attention to the work. You were very patient and helped us through the design process, which made it so enjoyable. Best wishes and continued success, Brandon and Charlene

I am only sorry that it was dark out when we were working with them. I can't wait to see how they will look in the sunlight. I am including a couple of pictures that I took tonight. I will take better pictures in the daylight and send them to you tomorrow. I am so pleased with them. They are just as you described. I was amazing how easy that they were to install. It was like, "Is that all there is?" I thought it would be so much harder than that! Thank you so very much for your patience, your hard work and your creativity! If you ever need a recommendation, you can definitely count on us! I knew the minute that I saw your windows on the web that they would be perfect and I was right! In spite of the shipping costs, I am definitely NOT sorry that I didn't go with one of the "locals." Can you tell that I am excited? I just wish you were here to share in it all.

Good Morning Rick,
Larry and I just got done wiping down the windows, and I just had to write o tell you how much we love them and what a beautiful job you did. We have them cranked open all the time now and just sit in the living room and appreciate them every day. You and Tom were so great to work with, and we appreciate you all the more when we have had to work with others on different projects. We ordered a new front door and some bi-folds for the back of the house, and two months after ordering them, we found out the salesman had never placed the order. The summer will almost be over before we see them now. So disappointing. Hope you are having a great summer.

Sincerely, Catherine and Larry

Hi Rick... We're still plugging away at settling in ... our front door window continues to be a bright spot of beauty amongst the piles of clutter that we work daily to eliminate ... we have a game plan for clutter elimination by the end of 2005 (hope it's a realistic goal). We would like to go ahead with the plans for the other windows but need to put it on low priority for now and enjoy our "bright spot" yet a little more until we're ready to let your talents shine again in our home. Drop by for a chat and tea when you are in our neighborhood ... glad you are busy shining God's light in the lives you bless. Happy 2005

Hi Rick. The windows are awesome. Working on finishing touches to the living room, but all is well. We will certainly keep in touch. Best regards, Stephen

Hi Rick, The window is awesome, you are truly a gifted artist. Thank you so much for getting it completed so quickly. I know I'm going to enjoy for many years to come and it will be a showcase in my home. Can't wait to show it off!! I will be sure to let you know if it gets into the magazine.

1. Sadly, I have no idea what type of camera I have. I went into the Sony store in Manhattan and bought the most expensive one they had.......for some reason, that's the way I shop??? 2. Thanks for the kind remarks about our home.....I feel that your windows have taken the house to another level and everyone that sees them is blown away. We have had the first window for over a year now and I still find myself pausing when I walk by to take a second look. If you do make it to Westchester, NY, we would love to have you over. 3. The next project is a window that sits above a small landing on our back staircase and looks out over our back porch.....I'll send pictures of it shortly. Thanks again Rick.

Rick. All our company left and I now have my first chance to tell you the windows look wonderful and fit perfectly. II'll take a picture when it is daylight. We are 100% happy with them and hope we weren't your worse customers during their production process. I now know I want a plain colored bed cover to go with them instead of the floral one I have had for the last 13 years. i am trying to decide which color to pick out from the stained glass. I can't wait for daylight to see them tomorrow. Robert put them in today before our company landed and I haven't had a chance to look at them for very long with he light shining through on them.
Thanks again Linda

Hi Rick, Yes we are having the show at the Hyatt Grand Ballroom on November 26. I am almost finished down stairs the window are the most fabulous part of my kitchen thanks to you! We decided that the house looked bi polar and completed the living room area, painted the outside and just finished the landscape. The journey has been great and the feeling my house is taking on is just what I wanted. I can’t wait to spread some of your charm in my upstairs windows. I would love to see you at the show. Let me know
Take care, Betty

Hello Rick, They look awesome and my Mom was breathless! Really. Thank you, Thank you!! The install went great - I will send some pictures to you tonight. I am going to take some more pictures next time I go down - I am not happy with the 15+ pictures I took. It was getting too dark to take the pictures w/o the flash and the lighting in the kitchen and the pictures with the flash reflected the brick red color paint inside the cabinets - It is very hard to take a good picture of glass cabinets. But as difficult the pictures were to take - the cabinets really look awesome and tie in perfectly with my Mom's kitchen/home. Let me know if you will be in North San Diego County - my Mom would love it if you could stop by.
Cheers! Brian

Thank you Rick! We are enjoying the windows immensely. The first night after the installation, we spent in our front yard all night contemplating their beauty. Your windows have added so much life and personallity to our house and so much visual enjoyment for us and to share with our visitors. I was telling Larry that on some of our many journeys around the world, we have hiked many miles to, and been charged admission to view equally beautiful windows in the many historical cathedrals and churches throughout Europe. Now we have to journey no farther than our own home to view beautiful art glass. Just so you know we have already had many people in our neighborhood stop us to tell us how much they love them too, and ask us who did the work. I've given your name and number out to 2 people so far. One woman this morning stopped by at 8:30 am to get your number. ( I was out in our yard.) It's a rare occasion when you get to work with someone when it seems like all the Gods are smiling on the work they do. It is one of the first times I have commissioned a work of art that actually turned out just the way I hoped and dreamed it would. You are a great pleasure to work with, and I hope we keep in touch.
Sincerely, Patricia and Larry.

Rick, your work is absolutely amazing. I have viewed every one of your pieces on your website and they are an inspiration to me as a stained glass hobbyist completing more complex work all the time. I recognize the difficulty of joining curved ovals inside straight lines, and fitting stamped glass due to its thickness. But the bevels, esp along curves intrigue me the most. You are an artist, I am a technician by comparison. Amazing flash intro too, Dave

Dear Rick,
I had every intention of writing you everyday this week. The doors are
unbelievably beautiful. I was so afraid that they would make everything else
look drab and cheap but it is just the opposite. It brings the whole kitchen
to a new upscale level. I can't thank you enough for your craftsmenship and
cleverness in getting the original glass out. The doors are a tremedous
asset to our home. I will let you know as soon as the kitchen is at a point
where you could come over for photos if you would like.
