Catholic Boy as opposed to Catholic Girls by FZ? About as non PC s you can get.

I understand the issue of finding good people that is why I build as well - much faster and I get the work quality I need when I need it.

Here is one I did for my spouse to be for her birthday (my second piece) - I saw it as a tie between heaven and earth via a tree - she saw a circulation system (microbiologist/immunologist).I always thought yin Yang was to simple to describe the phenomenon. The centers represent the eyes of the soul - one part sees clear the other altruistic.

Your pretty deep...I like it!

I have pretty metaphysical art I do as well, made mostly things found in nature. I used to have a housemate that did super high end stain glass. He used the hot rolled kind from the north east somewhere. I collected remnant pieces he left behind. I am hoping to tie in an arched window of stain glass on one end of the gable roof of the rock house. They rocked both sides up and left an opening the shape of an arrow head, which I also like the shape of. Not sure about supporting a window, or if I can do a half moon. I know exactly what I want to look out at, but not sure how to get it. Nuther dream. Wondered if angle iron could be used to avoid bracing that would cut my window in three. I found a 1500's arched transom imported from Belgium I wanted to set in the middle wall. It is made of cypress and is fully functional. Not sure how the roof will be braced for that either. But it will fit. Wondered about angle iron for it too.

Have you installed stain glass? Or is it too inefficient to realistically be considered for exterior windows?
