Art by Daniel Hogan

  Joshua Tree, California


The glass is all clear
I create leaded glass panels, always with clear textured glass, using a similar technique as stained glass (glass, lead & solder and sometime wire). I paint (acrylic) a matching pattern on a canvas or board the same size as the glass piece and wire the glass panel to the painted canvas or board. The glass kind of “lights up” the colors.
guess whoMuch of the glass I use is “found”. I visit thrift shops, garage and yard sales, antique stores and purchase inexpensive pressed glass plates, ash trays, candy dishes, butter dishes and just about anything that is clear, textured and catches the light. I also rummage through abandoned buildings for textured glass from shower doors, medicine cabinet glass and such. I have found some fun and unique glass for my art in the abandoned homes and buildings in Amboy, Chambliss, Landers and Wonder Valley in the Southern California High Desert.
Getting started
I’ve always enjoyed drafting and architectural drawing but never did more than dabble. In 2005 I started volunteering with the Palm Springs Art Museum Artists Council and joined the museum soon after that. The museum is, to me, much more about the people in our family of volunteers than the art but don’t tell the curators I said that. A year or so after I joined the museum I met an amazing and wonderful woman, Ellie Smith, who opened my eyes to working with glass. She was a stained-glass artists, I am not. Ellie passed away in 2016 and took a part of my heart with her. But my art lives on and a photo of Ellie looks over the workbench in the studio.
