2019: Yet Another New Year

Sea House Conservatory leaded glass front doors, 2018

2019?! This is beginning to require a lot of mathematics. For this I am very glad, because consider the options?
Above are the new Sea House Conservatory leaded glass front doors. The conservatory has more of a celestial, sun and planets design, whereas the Sea House Sea Rise Pavilion, below, is all about surf froth.

I cannae help that I’m the same designer, and that all my structures are connected in long time, in location, history and circumstance. And that they’ve all been built (and rebuilt) using salvaged parts of the now venerated Sea House Pleasure Pier and Estate. Oh, what a time and place to be actually alive and doing something than whenever that was!

    I love your doors. I think the grand old estate’s former owner must have had a very interesting vision when everything was first built. I can picture stained glass everywhere.

      So glad you like them, Sheila! The vision was indeed grand, and well-funded, but not ostentatious. And although the Pleasure Pier failed as a business venture, it was well-loved, and the remnants and artifacts were warehoused and repurposed. A post-disaster community is thrifty that way :)

    The doors are awesome! I see a setting sun and a few moons above it. Will they be clear or a colored in stained glass?

    You mentioned that you take apart and rework your projects, how do you take them apart and not damage them?

    Being home for a few days I’m finally working on my travel trailer that got a little damaged when I moved a year and a half ago.

      Bennie, my first thought was clear glass, but now that you mention it, maybe a deep red planet orb is called for. Understated, like Wright, rather than Tiffany.
      I have found my builds to be very sturdy, and most of the changes are additions. It results in some sub-optimal and inelegant technique, but hey, write a story around it :) I usually scrap the base landscaping board, and that does wonders for a fresh start.
      A travel trailer! Is it scratch built or kit bashed? I’d love to see your vision!
