This week I started the Atlanta Glass Project devoted the appreciation of stained and leaded glass primarily in Atlanta and the state of Georgia. It's for folks who enjoy stained glass. And who doesn't? Light through even modest colored glass delights us.
I want connections to expertise, history, and scholarship, to the art, the craft, and the craftspeople, to preservation and restoration. Social media should make it easier. It's a community thing; it's crowd-sourcing. I'm looking forward to your company and your contributions.
Right now it's an open Facebook group. You don't have to be on Facebook to see it.
To kick it off I'm made this stained glass bucket list, places to see stained glass during the remarkable Atlanta Preservation Center's 10th "The Phoenix Flies." It starts this Friday. While you are out, look for the glass the post a few pictures.
There is so much more to The Phoenix Flies, three weeks of free tours including many architecture tourist favorites.
I hpe to "see" you at the Atlanta Glass Project, I'm looking forward to your contribution.
