What was once a Miner's cabin located on B Street in Virginia City is now becoming the visitor center for the Comstock Cemetery. The Comstock Cemetery Foundation is working hard at restoring not just the building but the Lush Garden that is the Comstock Cemetery grounds. If you wish to support this effort, please consider volunteering time or donating money to a worthy historic restoration effort.

This is the door of the Comstock Cemetery Visitors Center. The transom depicts an intersection of Victorian and industrial style. It contains the address of the building, 1 Cemetery Road. An image that invoked the Victorian style and Industrial of the Comstock of the time.
The original door's glass panels were cracked and as was common, I replace them with stained glass in the same color tone of the transom to produce a cohesive scheme. The glass used in both the transom and the door was traditionally hand blown glass from Germany and Belgium to preserve the historic flavor of this project.
One of my favorite things about stained glass is seeing how different light shines through and creates an always-evolving art piece. I like to look at my life experiences in the same way. This year was filled with many exciting adventures and experiences, each creating a different level of light, each reflecting off of me in a beautiful way.
I hope that as you reflect on your year, you're able to bend and move to allow for the most radiant light to shine through!
Adding Custom Stained Glass to your business is a classy, understated way to connect with your customers while empowering your staff to embrace your company culture.
Corrie works with business owners to explore the symbolism of a company's logo, branding and message. She expertly transforms these symbols into beautiful stained glass and fused glass, turning a message into a work of art.
When businesses take the time to add a unique touch to their interior, they gain a marketing opportunity for every passerby. "Everyone has to take a picture next to the custom window," remarks the restaurant and bar owner of Bucket of Blood in Virginia City, NV. Pictures of the custom stained glass end up on Facebook and Yelp with happy customers in the foreground. Marketing gold!
Custom stained glass is also beneficial for employees. "I didn't think the intricate design of our logo could be turned into stained glass. When I saw Corrie's flawless stained glass, I knew I could never serve a customer again without checking and double-checking my work! Absolutely inspiring!"
A custom piece of stained glass is art enjoyed for a lifetime! Stained glass is a timeless medium that holds history while telling your modern story. Custom pieces can be centerpieces in a business or home setting. Visit my gallery which includes examples of custom designed stained glass projects for businesses and individuals. Projects include:
