Stained Glass WIndows




A long time ago now, I was a Stained glass apprentice in Ireland. I became a full tradesman at it before discovering art and subsequently dumping the glass cutter for a paintbrush and wacom pen. Well, 15 years later, I decided to give it a crack again. I'm in a constant renovation battle with my old craftsman home, and wanted to build "Frank Lloyd Wright style" Lead lights. That would be a win-right?
Wrong - if your a millimeter off you're a mile off (as I learned). I made 2 of these - about 5' high. That's a 'Dard Hunter Rose' design for anyone vaguely interested.
