Just when you think you are gaining some expertise and ability in crafting stained glass art, you find a site like Stephen Bonesteel’s and realize how much more there is to learn.
Stephen Bonesteel’s work is like nothing else. You can feel the wind as the cars race by, hear the whine of the engines, and see the dust flying. Amazing! It is hard to believe that this is stained glass.
While I hate red type on black background (so hard to read,) the pictures of these stained glass auto racing scenes are awesome. The cars depicted include Ferrari, Lotus, Duesenberg, and various Indy and Formula 1 cars. He even did a window of a Clark Gable Duesenberg. Most of the windows are 3′ by 5′ and most were commissioned. At least one was for sale last time I checked: a great 3′ by 5′ window of Jeff Gordon winning the inaugural running of the Brickyard 400 in 1994 is priced at $6,000.
You don’t want to miss this if you are an auto racing fan. Imagine having one of these one-of-a-kind windows in your home! However, even if automobile racing is not one of your interests, if you are an aspiring stained glass artist, or just interested in seeing how versatile stained glass can be, you should really check out Stephen Bonesteel Race Glass.
