When using art glass you always seem to end up with odd pieces that you simply have to get into a panel, which is the case here, The background glass dictated everything, the colour of the irises compliments it so well. Only enough for a small panel though.

These panels were inspired by the work of Kaffe Fasset and were the first of my original designs. I had been making Tiffany lampshades for some years but I always wanted to do my own designs at some point. I used Uroboros and Youghiogheny glass for the pansies and concentrated on the shapes and colours of the blooms, deliberately cramming them together. I then used the green border to frame the flowers and balance the overall effect.

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.

It seems appropriate, given the time of year to share ” The Green Man ” with you. This piece is made with Youghiogheny and Uroboros art glass in a pendant design. Originally a pagan symbol, the green man is often found on churches and of course public houses. It is also a popular image for stained glass artists
