This large ( 4ft. x 10ft. ) etched mirror hangs in the lounge area of the Old Oak Inn, in Soldiers Grove, WI. The pictures are of today's local residents dressed in costumes of the late 1800's when the Inn, formerly a residential mansion, was constructed. We photographed the cooperating townspeople and etched their faces "on location" in 1898 using a shaded etching technique. The people are pictured on the lawn with the Old Oak Inn behind.
WE LIKE CHALLENGES...Each year goes by and something more unique comes up. Like the Old Oak Inn project. We loved the concept of people participating in a work of art...and they loved it too. We can put your picture on glass or mirrors!

The Marathon County Historical Society asked us to create the leaded clear glass windows to border this 1914 stained glass window in the center. The stained glass is an original from the house and the clear leaded glass frame border we created matches the original style of the glass in the entrance of this historic building.
A portrait of a young lady carved in 1/2" glass is sure to become a family heirloom.

COUNTRY GARDEN RESTAURANT in Soldiers Grove, Wisconsin, has our etched mirror showing the west side of Main Street of that same town. Or should I say, what used to be Main Street. Because of perpetual flooding of the Kickapoo River that the town was built around. the entire business district was abandoned and much of the business moved to an uphill area about 3/4 mile away. All of the buildings on both sides of the street were razed and the area was turned into a park.
Woodland Glass Arts Ltd. was part of that exciting adventure as our first building (smaller picture) was right on Main Street. The entire new town became the first solar business district in the nation as all of the newly constructed buildings were solar heated including our new glass studio. The mirror was installed in 1982, six years after we started.
