Staying with the ” Tiny Tiffany ” theme this time I have gone for an Apple Blossom design.The background glass here is a Uroboros fracture glass code 10-55 Cobalt Blue, White and Green. This panel can be hung in a window or placed in a stand as shown here. The original panel size is 12 inches, ( 305 mm ) diameter.
Poppies are a favorite subject of mine and many other stained glass artists,they just work so well in glass. They are also associated with remembrance in particular for the fallen in two world wars.
This panel is made using Youghiogheny stipple glass, I tried to keep the design fairly simple and let the glass do the work. I have poppies growing wild in my garden and am always struck by the way the red really compliments the green surrounds. For those of you who are interested in reproducing this panel it is now available as a PDF downloadable pattern in the Pattern Store http://www.kennedyoriginalstainedglass.com/?sd_product=poppies-stained-glass-pattern
