One is never sure how a color scheme is going to pan out so I have started this panel by cutting a flower, some background and leaves.I have tried different colored centers for the flowers and have settled on Youghiogheny ” Laburnum ” glass. I may yet change these as the panel develops. I have added more of the background glass now which is Youghiogheny stipple glass, code NO 57 ” Neodymium Pink with Peach Gold & Bubblegum “. More background and more flowers and leaves now, flower glass is Youghiogheny code N367 ” Neodymium Pink, Dark Purple and Blue”. Leaves are also Youghiogheny code 1431 ” Lime and Emerald Green “ I have taken the background glass down the left hand side of the panel here and am thinking of introducing some fracture and streamer glass on the right hand side, and also some water effect along the bottom of the panel.
Apple Blossom Pendant
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 Pendant 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 clearly see the fractures in the glass.
I think the fractures prove very effective when viewed from the front adding a sense of depth to the composition. This pattern is now available in the Patterns Store © David Kennedy 2016.
These are various pieces currently for sale in the studio, we make these up during the year in between commissions.
Pansies Door Panel
These Pansies Door Panels were inspired by the work of Kaffe Fasset https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kaffe_Fassett and were my first attempt at producing original work. After spending a few years making reproduction Tiffany Lampshades I was keen to try my own designs.
I used Uroboros and Youghiogheny glass for the pansies and concentrated on the shapes and colors of the blooms, deliberately cramming them together. The inner panels were made using the copper foil method .The green border was then added using lead came framing the flowers and balancing the overall effect.
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
