|Designer, Glazier and founder of Luminosity Studios|
was born in the Bronx, NYC in 1951, where I excelled in stickball and
scully. The rooftop of my grandparent's building looked down upon the
home plate of Yankee Stadium. Life was good.
I have been a self employed artist my entire life. In 1973, I joined
the oldest guild in history, when I entered an apprenticeship to the J
and R Lamb studios, founded in 1857. There I had the opportunity to study
under some of the most renowned stained glass designers and craftspeople
in the world. I participated in the fabrication and restoration of ecclesiastical
window installations throughout the New York metropolitan area including
landmark churches such as St. John the Divine and St. Mark's On The Bowery.
During this period I was also involved in the restoration of an extensive
cache of Tiffany Studios windows owned by Hugh F. McKean which are now
on permanent display in the Morse Gallery of Art in Winter Park, Florida.
In 1975, seeking an escape from the exorbitant cost of survival in the
big city, I moved to Vermont and founded Luminosity Studios. Operating
out of a beautiful old Victorian church on route 100 in Waitsfield village,
it is here that I have honed my skills and became an atelier to the granite
trades in nearby Barre, Vermont and designed memorial windows for mausoleum
projects worldwide. Collaborating with architects and designers throughout
the United States has provided me with the opportunity to be involved
in the design of numerous commercial and residential interior design projects.
Luminosity Studios services include all applications in leaded, stained
and beveled glass. We design and specify lighting in any period style.
Custom etching on mirror and glass, as well as the design and fabrication
of windows, entryways, signs and logos for both the private and corporate
sectors are also available.
The photographs presented here are a sampling of our creative endeavors of the past 30 years. Please feel free to call on us for any of your custom art glass needs.
