Custom work and design is what I do. I picked up the stained glass while employed as a designer/draftsman for a studio a while back. I really enjoy different historical styles, but there's little call for them in mainstream stained glass. I've also worked with acrylic, mica, metals, ceramics...and just plain junk. Currently trying to make it on my own with the art glass after a charming six year stint in a light fixture factory (learned alot tho'). I only have a hard copy photo of the Mambo Cat, but will digitize it soon.

Ahah, so thats where the lamp experience comes from. Hmm, artist, lampmaker, glass breaker, looking for comissions,,hmm. Anybody want lams, stained glass tikis. I think you should just make up a bunch of tiki stuff and bring it to
"Chicago Exotica"
http://tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?mode=viewtopic&topic=13380&forum=4&start=0
and then when you find out how well it does, make up a Bigger batch and bring it on down to Hukilau, http://tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?topic=13444&forum=4&128
That is If you don't mind doing a bunch of Tiki stuff. Do you have a copy of "The Book of Tiki" yet? An art book(I meant THE art book) full of and all about tiki.
Did I say Welcome to TC yet??

Well, I ordered 'The Book of Tiki' from Amazon yesterday, so my indoctrination begins. There's a style to the 50s-60s Tikiana I'm trying to capture in my original stuff without directly copying anything. It's all about lines; subtle changes in placement make such a difference. I'm pretty heavy into Anime due to the same preoccupation I have with lines. Anyway, thanks for the welcome and I'm sure I'll be back with questions. I'm especially enjoying all the different Tiki items people make themselves.
