Pumpkinfest 2015

This will be my last public event this year due to the pending arrival of two new grandchildren in November and December!

I planning on being able to post some of my new products to this site before the Pumpkin Fest, but time is running short and my days are becoming very busy.

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 or check.

Recently had the honor of being asked if I would mosaic a table top at my favorite place, the Highmark Caring Place, where I volunteer.  Naturally, I accepted.  Although this was my first mosaic piece, I think it turned out fairly well.  The image of a butterfly and the broken heart is their logo, symbolizing the Hope (butterfly) that they give to grieving children and their families on their grief journey, following the death of their loved one. The blue glass used, both light and dark, were scraps from the Caring Place Butterfly suncatchers (Hope) that I made for all the volunteers for their volunteer gift for their 10 year anniversary of their location in Lemoyne, Pa.  For further details on the construction on this suncatcher, please visit my Page, Hope the Caring Place Butterfly.

As near as I can figure their are over 2,000 pieces of glass in this project.  Each one broken or cut with love and admiration for the work that is done within their facility and the strength of the families who come there for comfort and sharing.  This table is on display in their lobby (expressions) area by the fish tank in their Lemoyne, Pa location.  For further information on the Highmark Caring Place and the wonderful work that is done there, please click on the link here, above or under my Favorite Links on the right.

I have added these Butterfly Plant Stakes to my inventory.  These are made from recycled silverware that I acquired.  These particular ones are from small forks with the middle prongs bent to simulate antenna.  A metal rod is then soldered to the silverware after attachment of the wings.  This was time consuming since I think the silverware needs to be at a higher temperature to be soldered.

2015 is well underway and I believe winter is finally here in Pennsylvania with temperatures in the teens and wind chills well below zero.

Here are a few things that I have done recently.  Some of these are commissioned pieces, meaning they were made specifically for a client and are not stocked in my inventory.  However these as well as other designs can be made by me in relatively short order.

Welcome to 2015!  Hope it is a great year for you and your families.  I really need to search out new venues for the sale of my work.  Most local craft shows have been disappointing and rarely worth the time involved to attend.  I still enjoy making stained glass items, but find the greatest satisfaction when doing individually commissioned work.  We all agree on price and design before the item is made, it’s a win-win for everyone!

I have made a few new items and I will be posting them shortly.
