I'm a little slow today. I just switched to Sanka. So...have a heart?

What I did this weekend...


Here's what I've been bleeding over.

Any suggestions as to the middle colors/glass selections? I'm thinking of going with a patterned architectual in the panels next to the beige opaque glass... the glass around the edges has little bubbles in it, as does some of the glass in the second strip in the top. The other glass next to the blue opaque swirly glass is patterned like shower glass...

Ideas?

the skinny pieces down the middlr- cranberry red. The big rectangular pieces, maybe gold? or clear with a texture? Between the cranberry pieces, use the same blue you already have.

I'm not sure about Cranberry... I was definitely thinking about it before you suggested it, but if I go with that color, then the entire piece is the same color as the newly inagurated D.C. Subway cars.

I'm thinking something a little more lighthearted and fun for the middle. Though I'm not sure what colors will work...

Is that the torah?

Adrienne -

What? How do you see a Torah in there?! Do I look like the type of person who would use my Stained Glass hobby to make Judaica?! (Don't answer that.)

A TORAH!? Why am I so incredulous?! I don't know! But seriously. A torah!? It's a Prairie School/Art Deco Stained Glass design. Nothing more. :) No torah, no tefilin, no candlesticks, no kiddush cup, no breastplates, no megilah, nor yarmulkes, nor shofers nor sheitls.

Dreidl.

lighthearted and fun...hm...would the pieces be too small to use a patterned glass? Like a swirled something?
Lime green would be lighthearted, even tho I hate lime green and can't believe I'm suggesting it. I'm a girl, so I like pink. Pink would be like cranberry, only lighter.
Oh! Burnt orange- then you could give it to me and I'll hang it with a little carved sign that says War Eagle!

Do we share a mind? I was thinking of a pink, a bright green, and I have some shards of bright orange glass, and some shards of swirly burnt-orange glass that I was eyeing... I think I'm going to have to go to the Studio with the piece and shop around.

I have this awesome milky opaque yellow glass with white swirls in it that I was also thinking about..., but because of the very classic, serious colors around the edges, the blue and the cafe au lait, I wanted something zingy in the middle. I have the entire rainbow at my disposal, so I'm sure I'll find something... Nevertheless, I'll keep you posted.

And if you're very, very good, maybe you'll get a panel soon. :)

My aunt does stained glass- big things like church windows and doors with sidelights. She made me this art deco lamp out of stained and fused glass, and it's in aqua, lime, red, and white. Odd sounding but with a light inside it's quite pretty.

I like to see lots of color in stained glass, so pretty when the sun shines through.

Usually I like lots of color but for the Art Deco stuff, I tend to rely more on a mix of patterened clear glass with colored accents, because it's more true to the period.

Still, if I had less restraint, I would have gone whole-hog. As it is, I have big plans for my next panel which is going to be really spectacular. (And hard.)

well, I suppose we must all be restrained in some aspect of our lives.

I like the notion of clear patterned glass with bits of color- as long as the colors are strong.

OH. They'll be strong alright. They'll be strong.
