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.
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.
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.
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
This site is about stained glass in general, but in particular about American art glass and the pieces I create with this medium. Comments are invited that are relevant to the work. I have had quite a few comments so far ( mostly spam ) which I have to delete, during this process I have inadvertently deleted some comments which I had allowed and I would like to send my sincerest apologies to those who contributed these,
