Arts and Crafts Gold and Blue Transom

Just off the work bench and on the way to a new home.                             
A really nice combination of colors and textures, this transom has everything going for it.  
It will make a splendid addition to any home. 
I have listed the pattern on Etsy so if you would like me to custom make one for you just let me know.

Log Cabin Stained Glass Panel

This is a nice variation on the classic Log Cabin design.  A custom glue chip center bevel surrounded by clear bevels. Then into a bit of glue chip, a bit of  EnglishMuffle blue, and of course, more glue chip.

Waterglass Transom

All in Waterglass, except for the bevel of course. Amber and clear with a center bevel to set it off.  It measures about 6" X 18" and is framed in strong zinc.  Just the thing for a wedding, graduation, or birthday present.  Yes, it is on my Etsy site for sale.

Just a bit of eye candy.
Placed in a restored frame from the local Dayton area.
It has already gone to its new home.   Enjoy.

Custom Blue Stained Glass Bevel Panel

 Start with a custom designed center bevel cluster. Then surround it with a beautiful blue English Muffle glass from the Wissmach Glass company in West Virginia. As a final touch wrap the entire panel in even more bevels. A dark patina, a strong zinc frame, three hooks so that you may hang it either vertically or horizontally, and 24" of hanging chain. This signed and dated panel measures out at about 12" x 17" and you should see the light come through it. A great addition to your home. Yes, I just had to put it on Etsy.

10 x 15 Bevel Panel

On the way out of the door, this very nice 10"x 15" bevel panel will be a great piece hanging in the new owner's window. Color will spread all over the walls when the sun comes through this panel. I just love what the bevels do in the light.

Kitten Bevel Panel

Everybody like cute cats and kittens.  Right?  (well, almost everyone)
Doing some rearranging in the studio, I ran across this cat bevel and just had to make up a small panel. Nothing special but it has sold already.   YEA !

Blue Bevel Panel

Let's see, 3 bevels down the center. A surround of crinkle glass, a very deeply textured glass for a really nice sparkle. Add an inch of English Muffle Blue all around for just a pop of color.  OK, I will add another smaller bevel to each corner. To top this off, a very special coloring on the lead lines and the frame....a rich copper tone on the lead lines and a deep black on the frame.
That should do it.   Now, take it to the store.

Green with Bevel

I just love this glass!
A large part of my fascination with art glass is the way light plays with 
the texture and color of the glass. When I was a child, my father had the 
front door/sidelights of our house replaced with stained glass and I fell in 
love with the art. 
I would go and sit in the entryway and just watch how the sunlight 
splashed color and texture all over the area.In the evening I would go 
to the sidewalk and just stare at the front with the light streaming out.
....Yes, I was hooked.
This is the latest project. A reclaimed window frame, which will be shown 
in the next image, that a friend brought over.       "I hope you can do 
something with this for me," he said, "I really would like to use this since 
it came from my childhood home."
This is what we did.  I will post another couple of images tomorrow.
