Small Works...
Commissioned glass art awards or glass art gifts ... 
So often we look for meaningful gifts for business associates or friends. Other times it is a gift to mark a special occasion or event. Small commissioned works are one-of-a-kind gifts for someone special.








This piece was commissioned to honor WXXI’s President, Norm Silverstein. It is crafted from frit and fused painted glass.


"Thank you in person for the absolutely beautiful, beautiful, beautiful piece. I have given my wife Margie, a Steuben Heart just about every Christmas until they would have been duplications of what she had. Your heart without question tops the Steuben hearts by miles and miles. Your heart is displayed by in itself as well as the beautiful 
tile (a place of honor). I have admired your work for many years now we have two of your pieces in our home." 

Sincerely, Bill LaDue

"Thank you for the beautiful glass work that we will provide to our Sustaining and Honorary Board members. Several of us were admiring it this morning and commenting on the beauty of your artistry. . . you capture the spirit of Hillside in the work that you have provided for us. The simplicity and subtlety of your creations evoke an imagery that represents us well. I am sure our Board members will be pleased to display our gift to them as a beautiful piece of art.
It is great that our tribute and recognition of their service to Hillside is captured beautifully as a piece of artwork that can be displayed in their homes with great pride and enjoyment. Thanks again for your thoughtfulness and creativity.”

"Yesterday's celebration of the Cary Trust and its support of RIT over many decades was a true success and your artistry was an important part of it. We gave each of our guests a personalized gift that was reflective of both typography and design at RIT. All of the etched glass pieces you created for us, incorporating the RIT logo and the Cary Trust name, were magnificent! Your design and creativity of the monograms and poem made each one unique and so appreciated. . .
