Welcome to Fickes Glass Act – Because Life Isn’t Just Black & White

I recently created an American Flag as a new stock item, per a request from a customer.  Obviously it is not a true replica, not enough stripes and really no stars, however, I believe it captures the essence of our flag! The blue area does have ‘bubbles’ in it that sort of gives it a star-like effect.

I created a separate page for Hope, the Caring Place butterfly suncatcher that I was contracted to make for the volunteers at the Highmark Caring Place and presented to them at their annual recognition dinner in June 2013.  If you are interested, check out this page which shows you the various stages in the construction of this stained glass suncatcher.

Recently created this unique design for a night light for a friend of mine to be given as a gift.

I have updated my ABOUT PAGE with more recent pictures of my studio.  Please review this page and see where I spend many hours of my retirement creating items for your enjoyment.

And as always, I am open to doing commission pieces made to your specifications and budget.  I do not have this web site set up and secured for financial transactions, but if you wish to purchase anything from my PRODUCT PAGE , want a commission piece or just need more information, please contact me @ fickesglassact@gmail.com.  I do accept most major credit cards for transactions over $25, but my personal favorite always  is cash/check.

Please check out my other pages on this site.  My ABOUT PAGE gives some background about myself and how I began my journey into making stained glass products.  For information about some of my stained glass sun catchers, stained glass panels and other stained glass products that I routinely stock or sell, please see my PRODUCT PAGE.  Viewing my SOME MORE STUFF – MY PORTFOLIO will show some other stained glass items that I have made for friends and commissioned sales pieces that I do not routinely stock, just to give you some idea of what might be available. Let your imagination soar!
