This panel is made using Youghiogheny stipple glass, I tried to keep the design fairly simple and let the glass do the work. I have poppies growing wild in my garden and am always struck by the way the red really compliments the green surrounds. For those of you who are interested in reproducing this panel it is now available as a PDF downloadable pattern on etsy; https://www.etsy.com/ie/listing/487015291/poppies-stained-glass-pattern-david?ref=shop_home_feat_4

Glass Patterns Quarterly

Back in January we posted a small panel ” Scene with Poppies ” Shortly after we were contacted by GPQ , and as a result this design has been published in the current issue, along with a pattern and tutorial on how to construct this small panel.

Scene with poppies

When using art glass you invariably end up with lots of different pieces of odd glasses that you simply don’t want to dispose of. After a while these start to mount up and take up space so some thing has to be done with them which leads to this panel. I have taken the idea from a ” Tiffany ” window, I’m not sure how large the original window is but my small panel is 12 inches in diameter, a Tiny Tiffany if you like.

I wasn’t sure how this would work out but I thought I would give it a go anyway, having seen the end result I may well try another one so watch this space.

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.
