Daffodils

DaffodilAn exhibition piece.

“I always wanted to design a daffodil stained glass window”. David derives inspiration from out and about around our home in Slade, Co. Wexford.

Many photographs were taken and elements of each one became the design for this piece.

A lot of work went into this piece, the colours are vibrant together and the whole piece really reminds us of spring.

Japanese Koi Carp Stained Glass Panel

Quite a bit of work arranging this panel but David eventually settled on him swimming downstream.

Bullseye Glass used for the pink cherry blossoms everything else is Youghiogheny.

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.
