Brown bear at Big Bear Lake, CA

0 loves

Black bears are not uncommon at Big Bear Lake, CA, just north east of Los Angeles in the Angeles National Forest.   Brown bears are rare.  The panel was commissioned by a cabin owner who had added a new bathroom and wanted a stained glass panel for the medicine cabinet.  The panel is 15.75" x 22.50" and is copper foiled.  The glass is a mixture of Uroborus mottled and Spectrum streaky.  I painted the bear's head and the boulders with Reusche stained glass paint, and fired them at 1250 df in my kiln.
