Over the years he has made quite a few different things as a hobby. Always looking to find and try different types of things. Lead lighting and copper foil work is a great hobby although it is not cheap as the glass and tools can be expensive.
If you would like to create these sort of things then I would say go for it, although it is best to start with simple straight line cutting, then try cutting out different shapes and curves.
Another thing is matching the colors in the different kinds to best suit your object. This is not always easy as there is so many different types of glass to choose from.

Calling this one his Australian Kangaroo Clock.This one involves a lot of curve cutting and grinding to form the shapes. This is his most recent copper foil clocks.
This was his first bigger attempts at making anything with lead which he decided to add the clock after.

It is amazing the different things you can make with either lead or copper foil. Or you can combine the two by using lead for the frame and copper foil with the center pieces.
Whatever you decide let me know how you got on. Will post another one of other things he has made next time. There are so many different types of hobbies that you can try doing in your own home. If you do not give it a go you will never know what you can do.
