The client wanted to have something that did not block the light but wanted to add interest to the window space. I created a design that tied into the outside surroundings, wind blowing leaves/branches. The panel allows the client to still open the window and allow air flow. Materials include had beveled glass, clear and color textures, lead,copper came. The right image shows before the panel was installed

She is poetry in motion! The original design for the stained glass window panel was inspired by the music of the 1980s! The swirling colors in the background mimic the movement of the dancer as she reaches up and spins on her toes. Fabricated using Tiffany-style copper foil method, the panel measures approximately 18x22.5 inches.

I love geisha. The original design for the stained glass window panel was inspired by my love of geisha. I wanted the companions to commune on a bridge while gazing at the Koi fish below. The water and wooded background add a sense of serenity to the scene which is made more beautiful by the lovely geishas. Fabricated using Tiffany-style copper foil method

I was inspired to create the original design for the stained glass window panel by the sense of community associated with open air markets. Where better to locate the market than in the exotic setting of Tanzania? I wanted to re-create the busy-ness of the market by placing a variety of characters throughout the scene.The wise man counseling the younger man beneath the tree. The village gossip waving to someone across the way. The mother and child arriving to make the daily purchase. And in the foreground, we see the scene from the perspective of the young woman approaching the marketplace. The panel was created using Tiffany-style copper foil fabrication
