The Shamrocker

St. Patricks Day today so this piece seems quite apt. It is made as a pendant, the background glass is a Youghiogheny Stipple, the shamrock leaves and the black pieces are Bullseye Glass and the skull is made with a Uroboros Granite backed and cut using a bandsaw.

This is the full size panel ” Irises at Slade ” made with Uroboros Art Glass codes : 60 – 70, 60 – 543, 65 – 17, 65 – 145 . I took my inspiration for this panel from ” Van Gogh’s ” famous painting, trying to capture the colour and energy in my design.

Two Cockatoos

2 cockatoosThis is a stained glass panel made with Uroboros art glass using the copper foil method of construction. It is a copy of a mosaic panel entitled ” Two Sulpher Crested Cockatoos ” by Tiffany Studios New York, attributed to the artist ” Joseph Briggs “.The original panel is housed in the ” Haworth Gallery in the U.K. which holds the largest collection of Tiffany Glass outside the U.S.A. I never normally do copies but I always loved the original so I have put my own take on it so to speak, panel size is 36 inches x 26 inches.

Deep Red Tulips

An exhibition piece depicting a field of tulips.

This piece of stained glass is purely imaginative. The possibility of finding a field of tulips growing in Ireland during mid January is pretty slim.

David worked with straight lines when designing the border, “I don’t normally do straight lines, but it sort of works here”.

Dimensions including the frame : width 375cm x height 1060cm
