You may be wondering…what exactly is stained glass?
Simply answered: Individually coloured and textured pieces of glass, arranged to form patterns or pictures. These pieces of glass are held together with lead. Think of it as a glass puzzle – each piece is individually cut to precisely fit a pattern. It requires artistic skill to design appropriate and workable designs needed in order to build pleasing and durable glass projects.
Once a pattern is established, it is time to choose the glass. This can be a lot of fun, or really overwhelming, or both!
These two glass panels are mirror images of each other…with a few small changes. What is very obvious is how different they can look, based on glass selection. Maybe you can start imagining your own colour combinations. Sounds like fun doesn’t it?
Welcome to my world of stained glass.
My studio in Fenelon Falls is open year round by appointment. 705-928-4341
I’ll be in the Station Gallery on duty on July 20th. Come on in and have a chat. I’ll likely be keeping myself busy with my glass while I am there.
