Architectural Clear Wonder

by Jan Neff-Sinclair
(Carlsbad, CA USA)

This was my second leaded piece and the
first one I ever sold. It sold on the
first day of a student art show at the
junior college where I study stained glass
and it didn't even have a hanger on it.

There are twenty-two different types of glass
in this piece, each with a different texture.
Note the upper right piece of glass is some
of the special Saint Just glass. We were
very lucky at our school to have some really
excellent donations of glass, as I don't have
this kind of glass just sitting around the
house :-)

This is my second project - I believe in jumping in with both feet. It took me about 3 months to complete. I had to take it totally apart and re-solder as it was coming apart - think I went over it too many times trying to get the solder just so.

Navy Chief's Glass

Chief's Glass

Chief's Glass

I made this for my husband a few years ago. He is a retired Sr. Chief. The piece took about six weeks to complete and it's done in copper foil. The original design came from a patch he owns and I just thought it would translate well into glass. It is a 20" round (finished). I achieved the rope effect by cutting the pieces and overlaying them with twisted wire. The stars and Chiefs' insignia are three dimensional and attached with silicone glue.

From design to finish it took about 90 hours of work.Its a large piece about 24X30 and around 150 pieces of glass.

This was made from "leftover" glass. I used bevels and iridescent glass and you can't believe how many rainbows are flashing through my garden. I drilled holes in all and strung them up with some beads. It was great fun to make and is a wonder to watch.

JamiRose's panel

by Lori Shumey
(Castlegar, BC)

I found this pattern somewhere online... honestly... I don't remember where. I have changed it up a bit and added the border to the glass that I had. I am a beginnner and was given lots and lots of glass pieces and scraps. I am having so much fun learning this fasinating form of artwork. I am a portrait artist in graphite and love to work in acrylic painting as well. This is sooooooooooooo yummy! I would love your critique!

Todd's Sun and Moon face

by Todd Wislon
(Veneta, Oregon)

I took a picture of a complete project similar to this on my computer screen, created my own pattern, I then made the moon face much less stoic, it had a bit of an angry face. The sun face in the picture I took was difficult to tell if it was supposed to be a man or woman, I lightened the facial features and changed the cheekbones if you will. I love this piece, I donated to my brother and his wife. They hung it about twelve feet up in some cathedral type windows.

My First Project

by Nadine Pinell
(Houma, LA)

Nadine's First Celtic Cross

Nadine's First Celtic Cross

I took a great interest in stained glass and became determined that I'd find a class that would work with my schedule, and that I would learn this spectacular art. This is my first (well actually 2nd, but 1st solo) project. I am quite proud of this Celtic Cross and am hanging it proudly in my house! I'm looking forward to learning techniques and more determined to perfect that beautiful, THIN, souldered line. And many thanks to my instructor Sarah Sevogia for her patience and expertise.

Isis

by Claudia Patel

This is my favorite stained glass piece so far. It took a while because there are 86 pieces of glass, but it was worth it to me. I have been doing stained glass for about 6 months and I love it!

Hamsa Hand

by Alamein
(West Auckland, New Zealand)

This piece is a "pay it forward" gift to a lady who gifted me a piece of stone as I am enrolled in a soft stone sculpture course. It is Copper Foiled & is a symbol for protection. She had just moved into her recently deceased uncles house, so I gave it to her as a house warming gift & thought it appropriate, she loved it.

Riviera Spirit

by LAFFONT GUY
(06600 ANTIBES France)

I made this decoration on security glass stadip 44/2, when I first settled down in Antibes, Cote d'Azur, 7 years ago.
It's an overlay technique, with my own design. I also did the design for the wooden base to get a better presentation of it. This work got several prizes in local exhibitions .
I create many decorations for persons, restaurants and hotels, such as windows, doors, and lighted ceilings.
I first started on my own 20 years ago, with PARIS brasseries decor enhancement, where I had great success in outside panel decorations, etched glass like films.

Winnie the Pooh wants more honey

by Frances
(Suffolk, England)

I started stained glass eight months ago and this is my first attempt at a large picture suncatcher foiled with a lead surround. I downloaded Piglett and Winnie from a children?s colouring web site, Christopher I created by copying the author A. A Milne's drawing then put the three together in a hilly backdrop. I did not work with a pattern, I made the characters first (just like suncatchers) used glass paint to create the facial features and make piglet a bit more pink; placed them in my circle then built the backdrop around them. If I had worked my background out properly it would have turned out a lot better and taken far less time.

Round Window

by Quinn

Round Window

Round Window

Round Window Humming Bird Window Bathroom Windows Snake Mosaic

I have made several windows using either copper foil or lead or a combination of both. I have a 32" round window in my home that I wanted to replace with a stained glass window. I selected my pattern and cut and ground all the pieces. When I had them on my board (34" square I made for the window) I saw that I didn't have an edge. It was then that I realized I did not know how to lead a round window. I called the owner of the local stained glass shop and she said, "I start with my largest piece." My largest piece was a petal and I didn't know how it would end up a circle. I searched the Web, but didn't find what I needed. I wrote Sue for help. (Earlier, she'd sent an email saying she was caring for her mother so I worried that she was unavailable.) To my surprise, she responded quickly and gave me directions on how to start. It is wonderful to get help when you need it! It took me three days to lead this window. I had to re-grind every piece--even the bevels. I worried about getting the right dimensions because they had to be exact or Modern Glass would not accept it for installation. I am happy to say that with Sue's help it is now installed.

The Hummingbird window is 34" X 20" This is my design (my first) and I love the colors. I used scraps for the blue backgroun so it is light and dark. I fell in love with the orange but cannot get more as it has been discontinued.

The bathroom windows are both 30" x 8" I can slide one window open.

The mosaic is made with mostly opaque glass. My daughter outlined the snakes and the plant and my job was to fill in the rest and translate her idea into this 3' X 2' panel. She put it in her kitchen at the back of her stove.
