The red cardinal has been thought to carry a special meaning for so many. Some think they can be a spiritual messenger who have been sent by our loved ones to watch over us. The word cardinal comes from the Latin word cardo which means hinge. The cardinal is thought to serve as the hinge to the doorway between Earth and Spirit, delivering messages back and forth.

All my work is handmade in my studio in rural Addison, Vermont which lies between Lake Champlain and the Green Mountains. All of my work is made with the traditional Tiffany copper foil stained glass method. Each piece of glass is hand cut, edges smoothed out, foiled with copper tape, soldered, cleaned and finished with care. Because of the handmade nature of the glass and process no two are exactly alike.
