Laura's Palm is a stained glass window that is derived from Cleopatra's Palm, a design by Bill Hillman from his book Glass Design Sourcebook.

While visiting for a few days, my daughter wanted a crash course in building stained glass and fell in love with this design. We modified the design a little, and after a day or two's hard work and some fun Daddy- Daughter time, our profect was complete.

A classic Art Deco design, Laura's Palm measures 11" x 20", contains 73 pieces of glass, and was finished in September, 2008
A friend gave me a 20 year old solid mahogany front door that he was replacing on his home. After a year of saving the wood for a special project, I decided to make a lamp to show off the Laura's Palm window that my daughter and I had built together. A few hours of cutting, sanding, staining and wiring produced the lamp above. It was completed in March of 2009, just in time for my daughter's birthday.
