Here is another small window I made from a blown up photo, just as I did with the pumpkin window, tulips, and ash tree windows in my gallery. This one measures around 18 inches tall x 15 inches wide, and is framed in a really nice old 1910 quarter sawn oak frame that I 'borrowed' from an antique beveled mirror I have. This window is made using all Uroboros glass and copper foiled with black patina. The rich, dark colors of the plums and branches mixed with the clear fracture streamer background glass and lighter/darker colored leaves gives a wonderful balance to the piece, with a look of a window from around the same era as the frame.
Thank you again, Elzi. I am pleased that you like my work. I tend to always think that I get too fussy choosing my glass or with small details in my pieces, but when I finish a window I always look at it and think to myself how I sure am glad I did this or used that glass, or that I am really glad I took the extra time and did this, or that, etc. I guess one can never be too much of a perfectionist when it comes to glass work, as it always pays off in the end result. I really enjoyed building this window, as I love rich, dark colors in glass, and this one pleased me very much. I never get tired of looking at this piece as the colors and hues change wonderfully throughout every hour of the day depending on the light. Michael.
