Allison's Dino

Our daughter-in-law, Allison has been very busy. In the past year she ...
  • Graduated from The University of North Texas with her Baccalaureate Degree. 
  • Got a new job.
  • Married.- see Brian & Allison's Wedding
  • Is expecting a baby girl in January.
So what's up with the dinosaur?

Allison is an administrative assistant for Billings Productions Inc, a company that manufactures dinosaurs for zoos. museums, movies etc.

I guess somebody has to do it and she seems to like her job.

This year, Allison's birthday gift from us was a stained glass dinosaur.

My studio photographer (Mr. Something) documented the process...
It all starts with finding the right picture
...then cutting and grinding glass
...followed by inevitable bloodshed
...then 'foiling', piecing everything together, soldering

Applying a dark 'patina' to the solder
Eventually, a finished product
Admittedly, my stained glass art is far from perfect ...but it originates from my heart. 
Happy Birthday, Allison.
