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.
