The Don Cuco's restaurant in Moorpark, California features large stained glass windows 9 feet tall design by Lance Glass Studios, based on the Mayan legend of Kukulcan, the Plum Serpent. According to the story the Mayan tribal leader Kukulcan (AD 750), believed by his people to have descended from heaven, introduced the concepts of penitence, love, and exemption from the traditional rituals of blood sacrifice. The high priests and warriors were strongly opposed to Kukulcan's brake with their long held traditions. His substitution of incense, flowers, and maize for human sacrifice was an out rage to them. Known by his people to be vigorous, sexually potent, and endowed with an enormous penis, Kukulcan was deeply committed to a personal vow of celibacy that would sublimate his considerable virile energies into doing good deeds. Finally, on a tribal celebration day the wily priests betrayed Kukulcan by having an admiring beautiful young maiden present him a drink laced with magic mushrooms. While under the influence of the powerful aphrodisiac Kukulcan succumbed to the amorous young beauty and made passionate love to her. Awakening later, consumed with guilt of having broken his most sacred vow, he condemned himself. After proclaiming from the steps of Chichen Itza to return one day, Kukulcan embarked naked on a snake skin raft and sailed eastward into the rising sun of the Caribbean. At midday a tremendous heat ignited the tiny raft and in a burst of flames his heart arose to unite with the sun. To this day, in the spring of each year, natives and tourists gather at the foot of the temple Chichen Itza to witness the morning star believed to be the promised return of Kukulcan.

A retro Indian motorcycle done in modern show-bike colors. This piece, which is a very identifiable part of Americana, features hand painted Indian head and lettering. Bullseye and Uroboros glass were used exclusively in this high end, motorcycle collectors museum entry door.
These panels were commissioned by Templo El Oasis Foursquare Church in Lancaster, CA. There is a well known Salvador Dali painting, Christ of Saint John of the Cross, that depicts Christ floating on the cross in darkened sky over a lake. Having always been captivated by the piece, I borrowed the theme and employed the cranberry ribbon as a representation of Christ. The Dove being the classic representative for the Holy Spirit, and Olive branch, peace. The panels were rendered in surreal light rays, sky, and floating continental background.
This adapted Frank LLoyd Wright design was originally a pair of skylights in the B Harley Bradley house. Known to be one of the earliest of Wright's Prairie designs, the winged motif likely comes from Wright's and Orlando Giannini's interest in the American Indian motif. I found, through the sectional use of red, white and black, the design “reads” better than the original piece (pictured on right). It is harder to differentiate the visual movements through the more monotoned glass originally employed. A piece of that complexity is like a symphony for the eyes. It is a more memorable experience if the movements can be made clear and individualistic.
