Gerard Philipp started working in
Stained Glass in the mid-80ís and was able to devote more time to it
after he retired from IBM in 2000. A strong influence to pursue
this area was his wife, Barbara, an accomplished artist. In this new
chapter in life, he shares his time between the quest to capture unique
designs in Stained Glass, playing golf and spending time on his favorite
trout streams fly fishing. He also enjoys going to Boston each year to
visit the USS Cassin Young DD793 at Charlestown Naval Yard. He served on
her from 1958 -1960 in the US Navy.
Designing in Stained Glass is like having a palette with an infinite
number of colors plus degrees of opalescence and surface textures. No
two designs are ever alike. The process is described in the Custom
Design Process section. The designs are described best as " Window Art"
or sometimes panels. They are mounted in frames where hooks are attached.
Then to display them you just have to attach some decorative chain.
