I Feel Glorious!

A very grateful thank you to Kate Pittman for allowing me to use her original artwork for this piece.  I really love how the green trees outside shine through the textured clear glass in this panel. Now to get her all polished and in a wood frame.

   The geode sidelight was installed last month. A special shout out to my husband for the installation. I did get the hint however that he would rather not be responsible for installations from now on. I can't argue with him on that. Installation is the most stressful part of the whole project. I'm happy, the client is happy, and my husband is happy that it's the last install.

   The next project is a result of a marvelous piece of artwork by Kate Pittman, aka Rockstarkate. I saw a drawing she did on Facebook. I wrote to her and asked permission to use it for a stained glass panel which she very graciously granted. That was two years ago, and I'm finally getting to it.

   The hair, the body, the banner, the movement of the lines, all just screamed "glass".  I decided to use textured clears for most of the piece, with browns for the banner. I wasn't sure how to get the script on the banner pieces, I finally used my Dremel engraver, which worked just fine.
Everything is cut out and I will begin foiling this week.
