After LSU: Dallas 1977-82

After graduating from LSU in 1977 and moving to Dallas, I continued doing autonomous work. These efforts received favorable reviews in a number of museums and galleries across the country. Every now and then someone actually bought one. Here are a few from that time.

I soon realized that my passion for stained glass was a sort of addiction that had to be fed. No longer could I pay a $125 per semester lab fee and have free access to a huge selection of glass. In order to support my habit, I began doing such small, mostly residential projects as I could find. During this transitional period (from autonomous panels to architectural projects), I often retreated into my autonomous work where I had much more artistic freedom than I usually found in my incipient commission-work.
