Daniel Maher’s Recycled Windows

Did you know you can take old glasses and turn them into these stunning windows?

We were very excited when we found Daniel. He is the perfect match for our September issue of the magazine, dedicated to Marc Chagall and Dreams.

So who is he? Daniel is a unique stained-glass artist. He restores old windows and creates new ones. He also recycles old glass plates, bottles and bowls into amazing windows. He puts together everything he finds: pictures of grapes from serving plates and a glass from Mr. Peanut jars or ‘little pig went to a market’ plaque, corn serving plates and a corn mash. He uses objects with history to tell stories with his art. Some are more abstract (capturing emotions) and some more narrative (telling real stories) but all of them are quite fascinating.

And how does he do it? Here’s a little preview:
