Irises must have been created for stained glass they just work so well, the shape and the colours lend themselves to almost any design. This panel was designed and constructed in about 40 hours, the glass is Youghiogheny stipple.

This panel started as a thumbnail sketch which I did whilst my son was having a half – hour piano lesson. The full size pattern however took about four days to get right. Hydrangea’s grow in abundance in Ireland and in a multitude of colours making them a perfect subject to produce in art glass. The mop heads here are made with a Uroboros ring mottle, leaves and background are Youghiogheny stipple. The full size pattern for this panel is now available as a downloadable PDF file in the Pattern Store http://www.kennedyoriginalstainedglass.com/?sd_product=blue-hydrangea-stained-glass-pattern
This panel is an adaption of the ” Japanese Maple ” pattern. It was installed in the National Maternity Hospital at Holles Street in Dublin in June of 2014. The background glass is a Youghiogheny Stipple and the maple leaves are made using a Uroboros Granite backed glass. The finished panel was then encased in a sealed double – glazed unit, finished size 1320mm x 470mm.
This 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.
