This blog is where I talk about my three passions: Glass, Gardening, and my Straw Bale Home. I have a front yard edible garden where we produce a lot of our family's food, I am a recycled glass artist, and I am building a straw bale house. "All of Green Glass" is both about the recycled (green) glass, the (green) garden, and the (green) house.

Stained Glass Manti Temple
Trees in front of the temple
I finally finished it!After a long and time consuming marathon of stained glass, I was finally able to finish the stained glass picture of the LDS Manti Temple.This beauty took over 80 hours of work, but I was able to get it done in about a month.The temple is made of light sconces I melted flat, the windows, roof, and trees are also recycled bottles I melted flat.The sky and grass are made of salvaged stained glass I bought.Even the frame is made of salvaged molding.

This is by far the biggest, most difficult, and most rewarding piece I have made so far.It has just over 500 pieces in it.
Unfortunately there is no income off of this one; it was a wedding present for my brother-in-law and his new wife…they had better like it ;)I hope to be able to start making more large pictures like this one soon.
