This Gothic Poppies panel is in a renovated pitch pine sash. I had managed to salvage eight of these some years ago with a view to using them in my home. Four had a single pane of which this is one. The other four were taller and had double panes. At the time I was still in the building stage and hoped to incorporate them within the structure. This didn’t happen, so instead, I used them to display my stained glass artwork. I had already filled the other three sashes, the first was a “Tulips” panel, then a “Daisies” and “Daffodils” was the third. So this was the fourth and final one to complete the set.
Whilst building my house in Slade, there would always be clumps of poppies growing wild in the garden. These then provided the inspiration for this piece. First I took some photographs and made a full-sized template. Then a did a rough sketch which I developed into a proper pattern. Stained glass design can be quite restrictive with every line needing full consideration. You have to try and see the finished panel in your mind at the design stage.
