When you're a stained glass artist, eventually your windows become rather full of your own suncatchers. Once I couldn't fit any more "larger" suncatchers, I decided to start making my Window Jewels - palm-sized (or smaller) versions of my Scrappy Suncatchers that are petite enough to squeeze into the spaces between their larger "cousins!" The challenge, of course, is to *stay* nice and small - it's always tempting to add "just one more piece" until suddenly my intended Window Jewel is a bit bigger than I planned...
This Window Jewel features glasses in shades of yellow, with some clears to help break it up. This suncatcher is made with stained glass scraps from the glassmakers Bullseye and Spectrum, a couple pieces of Moretti glass rods, and a vitreous tile! The iridized surface of the clear glass scrap is even *more* colorful in person! A small butterfly stamping and antique copper patina finish the piece off nicely!
P.S. It may *look* like there is a crack in the lowest piece of yellow glass, but that is not the case! The line you see was created during the process of making handmade sheet glass, and is part of the unique character of this material!
Come on in and find yourself in a place where the only limit on what can be Created is that of your imagination!
