This site is for all who appreciate, design and make stained glass artwork

Pearson Art, previously known as Pearson Studio of Provincetown, Massachusetts has been making original stained glass panels and inserts for over 25 years. This blog will be an ongoing record of new and past stained glass designs and patterns. Any design can be free hund or build in. They can also be re-designed to specific measurements. If you are interested in having a custom panel made, look over the designs, chose a color set and e-mail Chris.

In addition to showing my own work, I would like to use this blog to demonstrate and discuss methods and techniques for medium scale leaded glass window production. This should be considered a step up for the hobbyist who is considering trying to make a living at designing and making stained glass windows. I would encourage you to send me pictures of your work for suggestions or ideas of how to approach the various styles.

Clamming on Cape cod






June 2011 Cape Cod

I am new to Chatham having lived in Orleans and Provincetown most of my years on the Cape. Chatham is broader in land and has a meandering coastline full of small inlets, sand bars, brackish mudflats, cranberry bogs and deep crystal clear glacial ponds.

The part that impresses me the least is that Chatham has a reputation for being posh and exclusive. The houses here are grand and often look down on the roads that pass by them. A lot of them are for sale so if you're are in the mood, come and take a look.

Last winter I vowed that I would become a shellfisherman or more commonly, a clam digger. I got my license from the town for a nominal $20 and had the best of intentions. The winter was cold and grey and I didn't get out like I had promised myself. This year will be different.

There are several small bays that I pass each day going to and from. One is in the first pic posted. There I met some nice folks doing what I should have been doing, digging for clams.. They almost had their daily quota of a basket full for each license.

They were digging for soft shell clams. They are usually found just above water line on a low tide and down in the sand about 12" These clams are sweet somewhat juicy compared to little necks that are found waist deep raked up from the bottom.

James is their dog. He is a grateful Jack Russell rescued from a shelter. James is officiating and making sure that any shellfish that is too small get thrown back. It's his job...

I reasoned that alone, or with cherished company, all's I need is a box of spaghetti and a few clams and it will make the finest meal....

Remnant from old leaded window

This was one of a unique series that I will post later. We used elements from an old leaded glass window that was beyond repair. Each piece was a one of a kind composition.

Tumbling block

It is the beveled interior that captures the sunlight making this a stunning window. This demonstrates how a simple design can be expanded to a larger size. This panel measured 13"x 30" Retail price $400.

Star pattern

This was probably one of the most beautiful pieces we have ever made. The outside border was a Bullseye iridized blue. It sold for $850.


This is another example of a simple design that becomes an elegant presentation.
First image above is the only pattern you need to cut this panel.
1 7/8" by 3" stock size diamond bevels and glue chip or clear German antique for the hexagons and segments.
