My name is George McGinn of Durham, North Carolina. For more information about me use the image icon on the left to visit my Artist page.
I do a wide range of designs, some with a Frank Lloyd Wright influence in layout and limited color use. Others use lots of bevels for that ideal suncatcher. I have designs with a religious art influence for those of the Christian and Jewish traditions. My custom pieces are ideal for home remodeling projects since they can be made in a range of sizes to fit existing spaces. I also do small handmade hardwood furniture. For custom work I always offer a firm quote. See Design Process below in the secondary links list for more information.
One of my most viewed areas is my Terrarium page. My newest addition is a lead free "Bevel House" terrarium (11/2019), shown in the thumbnail link image, constructed with zinc came and lead-free solder. A popular design is my "Victorian Crystal Palace" terrarium. I construct a number of large terrariums, some with a volume of over 2 cubic feet, true Wardian Cases for the serious indoor plant grower. You might also want to check out my Geodesic domed terrarium. I also have a DIY kit to construct a "Small Garden" terrarium design yourself, if you are into stained glass art. For more information about my numerous terrarium designs and options use the terrarium image icon below to visit my Terrarium page.
Another popular area of my designs is the "Celtic Design" section. Most use Celtic Knot bevel clusters and colored glasses.
I currently am featuring some of my wine rack tops. There are one of a kind handmade hardwood tops approximately 30" wide by 16" deep, each with its own grain pattern The image shows, left to right, a Zebrawood top with American Walnut end caps, a solid American Walnut top and a Canary Wood top. Use the image as a link to see a full description and larger images of the beautiful woods.
Finally, having received a number of orders for my American Flag hanging in 2022 I've done an additional larger design layout. The American Flag's dimensions are set by the size of the UNION (the blue part with the 50 stars). My new layout results in a flag with a little over twice the surface area. The image shows the two UNION sizes. Use the image as a link to see a full description of my flag designs.
