My Craft II


20 December 2019. Finally, after more than two years, the second stained glass window has been completed. Many complications and complexities made its design and creation a long process. For example, since there are many more pieces than the original window, there was more lead cane. More lead cane meant more weight and more weight put pressure on the glass causing some breakage.


As with most things, we never know how long a path we are on or how long a project will take. Unforeseen events or distractions may slow the process but in the end, anything worth doing is worth striving for.


I am a believer in effort. Effort is a kind of care and this care has effects. Whether it is a project, or a friend, or a work of art, you can see this effort (or the lack of it) and it can make or break a task. It can also take your breath away. Inspiration is like that and it is what makes life worth living.


And I want to thank Laura Carbone, who built this window. Her patience, skill and artistry made this possible.
