Here are some things that I have made that were not necessarily made for resale; more for my enjoyment or as gifts for friends, etc. However, if you see anything that you like, I would be more than happy to discuss making it for you. These items are specialized in nature, are not in stock and usually would require a substantial deposit or payment in full before I could begin.

All of my products are handmade by me using the Tiffany style. The glass is cut from larger sheets of glass following a published pattern or one created by me. Due to the nature and charteristics of glass, no two pieces are the same, even when cut from the same sheet of glass, each piece is unique. Most of my creations are done from my own patterns since I rarely seem to find patterns for exactly what I want. The edges are then made smooth using a wet grinder. Copper foil is applied to the edges and soldered together to form the final product. Hooks, etc. are added where needed. The final product seams may be stained using a patina in black, copper or brass or left silver, my personal preference. Everything is then cleaned and hand polished and made ready for your enjoyment!
This site is not set up and secured for financial transactions. I do accept most major credit cards for transactions over $25, but my personal favorite always is cash/check. Please contact me at Fickesglassact@gmail.com or firstname.lastname@example.org with contact information and I will be glad to discuss it with you.
