Staying with the ” Tiny Tiffany ” theme this time I have gone for an Apple Blossom design, the background glass here is a Uroboros fracture glass code 10-55 Cobalt Blue, White and Green, this panel can be hung in a window or placed in a stand as shown here, The original panel size is 12 inches, ( 305 mm ) diameter.. The stand can be purchased here http://www.fireliteforms.com/category/39175338 The pattern for this piece can be purchased on etsy as a PDF download here https://www.etsy.com/ie/listing/606937658/round-apple-blossom-stained-glass-panel?ref=shop_home_feat_2 Original panel size is 12 inches, this can be scaled up using the printing instructions included in the PDF download.
One is never sure how a color scheme is going to pan out so I have started this panel by cutting a flower, some background and leaves.I have tried different colored centers for the flowers and have settled on Youghiogheny ” Laburnum ” glass. I may yet change these as the panel develops. I have added more of the background glass now which is Youghiogheny stipple glass, code NO 57 ” Neodymium Pink with Peach Gold & Bubblegum “. More background and more flowers and leaves now, flower glass is Youghiogheny code N367 ” Neodymium Pink, Dark Purple and Blue”. Leaves are also Youghiogheny code 1431 ” Lime and Emerald Green “ I have taken the background glass down the left hand side of the panel here and am thinking of introducing some fracture and streamer glass on the right hand side, and also some water effect along the bottom of the panel.
This piece has been cut and sitting on the workbench for the past two months so I am delighted to have it complete and able to post pictures. Staying with the ” Tiny Tiffany ” theme this time I have gone for an Apple Blossom design, the background glass here is a Uroboros fracture glass code 10-55 Cobalt Blue, White and Green, this is the reverse side and you can see the fractures in the glass.
I think the fractures prove very effective when viewed from the front adding a sense of depth to the composition. © David Kennedy 2016.
Effort number three in my ” Tiny Tiffany ” series is another scene, this time using irises which just work so well in stained glass. Getting some small pieces of yellow in here was a bit of a challenge but like to think I managed it ok. I find using the water glass really adds another dimension even though the piece is so small.
This is a close up of the piece.
This is a small panel of a hummingbird made with Youghiogheny glass, these are all the pieces cut. I prefer to cut all the pieces before I start foiling as it provides some room for further slight adjustment should it be required. Once all the pieces are foiled all pieces are then flat soldered enabling me to remove the template. I then attach the perimeter lead and bead solder the piece, apply the finish patina and a final polish to complete the project. This final image is edited in photoshop © David Kennedy 2015
