Irises must have been created for stained glass they just work so well, the shape and the colours lend themselves to almost any design. This panel was designed and constructed in about 40 hours, the glass is Youghiogheny stipple.

Youghiogheny Poppies.

This is a Poppy panel made with Youghiogheny stipple glass, the design was draw as a sketch and then just adapted for stained glass. This method seems to work best for me, it keeps the design fresh and free flowing rather than the rigid lines of traditional stained glass.

This panel started as a thumbnail sketch which I did whilst my son was having a half – hour piano lesson. The full size pattern however took about four days to get right. Hydrangea’s grow in abundance in Ireland and in a multitude of colours making them a perfect subject to produce in art glass. The mop heads here are made with a Uroboros ring mottle, leaves and background are Youghiogheny stipple.
