Glass half full

"People are like stained - glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within."

- Elisabeth Kubler-Ross (

It's one of the coldest days of the year so far, with a windchill of -25 celsius, but that didn't stop us from visiting Kuta Glass Accessories in Georgetown, Ontario, to buy stained glass for the project. The stained glass will complement the vitreous glass we've already ordered (and eagerly await) from a company in the US called Mosaic Art Supply.

It's a guessing game, trying to figure out how many square feet we need of each colour, but we certainly wouldn't cry if we had to make the trip again. Kuta Glass is a magical place, with row upon row of colours and textures.

We found some real gems, and can't wait to see the variations of colours in the stained glass, and how the sunlight will play across it.
