Here is a small window that I just finished a few weeks ago measuring 14 inches wide x 11 inches tall without the frame. I made this window using all Uroboros glass, most of it from the 1970's. It is copper foiled with black patina. I don't use a lightbox, so the hardest part of this window for me was trying to get the dirt to look like dirt. It was both a fun and frustrating little project, but it came out very nice and now hangs in part of my livingroom window.
@MrsJake I would have a hard time dealing with a broken arm too. Actually, I got this pattern from a friend. He found it somewhere and enlarged it but never got around to building it, so I asked if I could give it a go and he said 'take it'. I always love building windows from things in nature and usually build from my own enlarged photographs, but I really liked this garden scene and knew it would make for a great window with the right glass. It was a fun project.
@MrsJake Thank you, MrsJake. That is a nice compliment coming from such a fine glass artist as yourself. I worked hard at trying to get that dirt just right, and I am always overly fussy what glass I choose and cut for each piece. I am glad it shows. In person the window has that great dark old Tiffany plated window look to it except without the plating. Michael.
