  3. Absolutely beautiful.

    Another version of the fire experience/story/sermon.

  4. That sure is one stunning piece - like a desert sunset

  5. Beautiful piece of glass, Wayne. In my 30-year experience with the railroad, I found the union to be the other side of the sandwich in which I found myself, there being no choice about membership. Both "slices", in my opinion, had little concern for the worker and a man just collected his check, paid his dues, was glad to have a job. It paid my bills and fed my family for three decades and I am grateful; but, to be truthful, I could see the argument on both sides, gave thanks to God for the employment, and survived.

  6. Thanks for the comments, I just posted on 5 projects using this type of glass.

    Jim, as for unions now and then, I am not certain about much. What I do know is that the union that is inspiring the jazz fought to get unlocked doors and fire escapes, both of which were not provided. The shirtwaist workers were trapped on the 9th and 10th floors with no way out. Unions fighting conditions like that and worse are what I celebrate and I am glad unions are still around to fight against companies that could care less about workers quality of life and what they would do if laws did not exist to protect folk. The company was found innocent in court and set up business in a condemned building.

  7. I love this, but the blue glass in the background of your next post really brings out the warm hues. Love the swirly texture.


Thanks for visiting Stratoz. I dig comments. Feel free to leave one here.
