Gothic Daffodils

Gothic Daffodils

“I wandered lonely as a cloud, That floats on high o’er vales and hills When all at once I saw a crowd, A host, of golden daffodils;”

Gothic Daffodils framed stained glass panel, designed by David Kennedy, Uroboros Art Glass

This Gothic Daffodils panel started with the frame. I had managed to salvage some old pitch pine gothic window frames. At the time I was building my own home so my initial thoughts were to incorporate them into the build. That didn’t happen and after renovation, I still wanted to use them. So framed stained glass panels seemed like a perfect way to make use of them. I made a base, using some heavy oak timber and mounted the frame upright. There were eight in total, four with a single pane and four with double panes.
I created this in late February, early March when the daffodils were in bloom. To create the composition I photographed as many clumps of flowers as I could find. Then after looking through these I chose various elements to include in my design. I then made a full-size template and drew out a sketch. This was then refined and worked into a pattern for stained glass to fit my frame.
A lot of work went into this piece, the colours are vibrant together and the whole piece reminds me of spring. I was very pleased with the end result and I hope everyone else likes it as well.
Dimensions including the frame : width 375cm x height 1060cm
