Incredible Artisan

After a long successful career owning a large sign company in central New England, Ron Lussier retired and set his sights on a field well suited to his particular talents. He took a stained glass class. Interestingly enough, those same skills that served him so well, skills like knifing, pattern making, masking and design, proved to be more than enough to turn his beginner class into a tutorial for the rest of the class on pattern making.

A hobby turned into quite an impressive body of work. Some from existing patterns, some just became.

An actual coloring book page, colored by a child, and turned into quite a piece of work.

Part of a 4 panel screen that to this day blows me away! He not only creates the glass pieces, he builds the frames.

This has to be my favorite. I absolutely love the intense color and mod design. It's a refreshing break from the usual traditional stained glass work I've seen. Someday I hope to see this one in a gallery. Or perhaps it'll make a nice birthday present for some deserving and loving daughter. Whaddaya think, dad? Er, I mean, Ron?

These pieces are available for sale. Comment for contact info and additional images.
