Chuck is an artist who takes antique windows, pops out the existing glass and replaces it with stained glass, art glass and Miller’s own original photography. He calls his creation Dream Window. Dream Window 18 is considered his most technically complicated but emotionally satisfying work to date. His emotional attachment comes from the many times he admired this sign as a boy in Albany NY’s historic Capital District.
