A visit to Mary Patrick near Bruno, Arkansas this past summer brought quite an unexpected surprise. We knew she made stained glass and glass sculpture but had no idea what extraordinary pieces we would see. The home is filled with the beauty of reflected colors through glass, along with her other lifelong treasures. Glasswork fills the covered porch work area, murals cover some walls and glass sculpture and art even extends to a little shed near the garden. Visit and buy a piece. I did.
