Today we're talking about inspiration for stained glass patterns. Inspiration come from anywhere. When I worked for the late Gianni Versace at his home in South Beach, Miami, we did every window in his home in stained glass. Pattern designs and ideas came through his eyes to mine and what he always said to me was, "When you think you've gone too far, go one step further." Keeping that in mind, I enjoy drawing my own patterns. Drawing patterns are part of who I am and what I do and how I get excited and, and passion for my work. This is a fine entry way that was done for client for, in a private home in South Florida and as you can see, this client did really want to be able to continue seeing their palm trees through their fine entry; but yet they didn't want people to come up to their front door and look in. It's a beautiful perfect way; no blinds; it lets all the lights in that gives them tremendous privacy. I chose to, to design my pieces as a single palette as oppose to two separate windows. It gives a little expand on the fine entry and it gives the client a real piece of art to look at whether sitting in their living room, when they're leaving their house or when they're coming back. If you're not really good at drawing and you're afraid that you don't draw your own patterns or you haven' tried that yet, you can always go to your stained glass retail shop and buy pattern book and after awhile, you'll find that you're going to be changing some of those patterns and, and eventually you put your own signature. At some point in time you're going to get of interest and you're going to draw your own patterns. Good luck and just look at life with passion.
