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.

Soldering the foiled pieces together. The spool of solder is on the left.
The soldering iron I'm holding melts the solder to the copper foil.
Metals need to be compatible in order for them to melt together.
Not just any metals can be soldered and melted in to one solid.
Hey it's chemistry! Don't ask me I'm an artist, I just use science
I don't understand it!
