From One Piece of Youghiogheny Glass to Many: The Journey from the Factory to The Studios

Stratoz bought this amazing sheet of glass at the Youghiogheny Glass Factory in Western PA, and took this luminous photo before cutting it. Yes, he cut this beautiful thing. Some people just keep the sheets whole, like we discovered at the 401 Diner in Conshohocken.  The hostess seated us in a booth by a sheet of glass that looked remarkably like ours, and which we had put on our business card.

In spite of the twinge, I was delighted to receive the scraps Stratoz created in the process of making his stained glass designs.  The variation in color creates almost infinite possibilities.  A fellow pinner on Pinterest, Christopher McCullough, pastoral leader, architect and stained glass artist, wanted to know what we used this beauty in, and that started me looking.
