What Others Say
I reached out to Michael after a glass shade broke (and could not be fixed) from our chandelier. His was the only name that came up online where the customers were proud of the work done.
Michael went back and forth multiple times with me on the exact sizing, touch and feel, and installation of the shade, and then free blew a shade rather than go the colts route of preparing a mould.
This shade was nowhere to be found on the internet, and nowhere to be found with any dealers in Europe or USA.
The result is we now have a chandelier which is completed and not even I know which shade is the original and which one is a duplicate.
Kudos to you and thank you for the work.
Thank you for doing such a great job on blowing the custom glass globe for my antique family chandelier. It was quite tragic for me when the original glass broke. When you sent me the finished product photo of your work to replace it, I was nothing more than ecstatic. I recommend your work to anyone and everyone anywhere. Thanks for allowing me to enjoy my family memories by restoring my chandelier.
"I wanted to tell you how much my husband loves your work. He was skeptical about the project (glass panels) from the beginning, but he was wowed by the doors when he saw them Friday eve. They look beautiful at all times of day and we are both delighted with them. The three-dimensionality of the glass is also a joy to touch -- our own domestic version of Ghiberti's baptistery doors in another medium. We also love the mystery of the "other side" in which the lines and shapes are floating in glass. Our first commissioned work was a great success."

Hi Michael -
I couldn't believe it when Tom walked in with the lantern last night. ... It looks terrific. Thank you for your superb craftsmanship. It couldn't have been easier to work with you.
