Welcome to Rick Hickmann Art Glass!

I hope to share with you my love of stained glass. I view my glass work as an art form so every design is my own creation and I do not repeat designs in my windows. I enjoy the challenge of creating a work that becomes a part of the personality of the clients and also fits in with the interior decorating. Feel free to make comments, ask questions, or critique any of my postings. If you click on the slideshow to the right you can view the pictures in a larger format.

After I have the design finished to scale I purchase the glass
and supplies. I go to Portland to select my glass from among
thousands of pieces of glass. The pieces shown here are about
four square feet each so they are large pieces of glass. Notice
the difference in these pictures. They are the same pieces of glass
but in the top I tried to photograph them so you see the glass
without the backlight or as they would be viewed at night.
The bottom picture is with the sun behind them lighting
them up. It is an example of why I tell people that the windows
can change colors depending on the light and type of glass.
