Luverne Artist Donates To A Good Cause

Bookmark and Share

Back to the grind artist Lori Ann Hallstrom is hard at work.

"I had been interested in stained glass so I took a class in Sioux Falls and it was a perfect fit,” said Hallstrom.

Lori has been making masterpieces out of glass for about ten years now, opening windows to other projects such as making sun catchers for The Light of Day Foundation.  Each sun catcher goes towards a person who lost a loved one to cancer.

"It's an amazing project, unfortunately I have lost loved ones to cancer, so I understand that it's nice to not only have the person who died recognized but also the person living,” said Hallstrom.

By the end of June Lori will have made over 400 sun catchers for the foundation alone, the ones you see here are not quite finished yet.

"The design is actually quite specific, it is the design of the foundation, it's a sun rising over a hillside and it's just kind of a reminder that light of day comes again after you've had a loss,” said Hallstrom.

The glass is pre made but Lori makes each of the sun catchers by hand.  Each artist does it differently, but Lori likes the paint by numbers method, each piece has a number associated with it and even a color too, like cream.

Once the design is made the pieces have to be cut.

And soldered, before you know it you have a finished product all leading to a glimpse of sunshine for those touched by cancer.
