The magic of trees and stained glass art

Totem mandala – Wolf
The Goddess Cybele and her Lions. There is no lettering on the original art work.


African elephant. 10″ circle.



Laura J. Merrill spent twenty-two years designing and creating work in stained glass – both large works and smaller suncatchers, mandalas, and boxes. The animals and mythical figures invoke magical and spiritual levels beyond.


Most of the stained glass work has been sold over the years, but a few remain.  When they are all gone, there will be no more.


Laura is now writing a series of books about trees, Secret Voices from the Forest.

On March 2, 2013,  the C.P. Ramaswami Aiyar Foundation held an awards ceremony for their environmental program Kindness Kids.  Shri Dulichandji, Chairman, Karuna International, the Chief Guest, gave away prizes to the winners of contests.

“Leave Wild Animals Alone” was the theme of one of the artwork contests. Deer, peacocks, water birds, and other animals are happier and safer when not disturbed by humans.  They can live in the forest by a peaceful river.
