Round Apple Blossom

 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.

Effort number three in my ” Tiny Tiffany ” series is another scene, this time using irises which just work so well in stained glass. Getting some small pieces of yellow in here was a bit of a challenge but like to think I managed it ok. I find using the water glass really adds another dimension even though the piece is so small. This design is now available in the Patterns Store as a downloadable PDF pattern.

When using art glass you always seem to end up with odd pieces that you simply have to get into a panel, which is the case here, The background glass dictated everything, the colour of the irises compliments it so well. Only enough for a small panel though.

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

Here is a small panel ” Two Daffodils ”  as I like to post an image rather than just writing a few paragraphs. Daffodils always seem to lift the spirits .

This site is about stained glass in general, but in particular about American art glass and the pieces I create with this medium. Comments are invited that are relevant to the work. I have had quite a few comments so far ( mostly spam ) which I have to delete and during this process I have inadvertently deleted some comments which I had allowed. This was totally unintentional and I would like to send my sincerest apologies to those who contributed these.

Deep Red Tulips

Deep Red Tulips

An exhibition piece depicting a field of tulips.

This piece of stained glass is purely imaginative. The possibility of finding a field of tulips growing in Ireland during mid January is pretty slim.

David worked with straight lines when designing the border, “I don’t normally do straight lines, but it sort of works here”.

Dimensions including the frame : width 375cm x height 1060cm

“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.

Dimensions including the frame : width 375cm x height 1060cm
The full size pattern for this panel which includes options for a rectangular or gothic shape at the top is available now in the Pattern Store http://www.kennedyoriginalstainedglass.com/?post_type=sd_product&p=2367&preview=true
