glitz and grandeur

Recently finished patterns (January 2013) that I intend to get to before this summer.  Shown prior to blowing them up to size.  - Just need to afford the glass and set aside time to get to work on them.  

The facing birds are not originals but modified patterns based on the focal section of a picture of a door, from the book, “Stained Glass Windows of Distinction, Collection One -   featuring McMow Art Glass Studio Designers" by Wardell Publications, Inc. (1995).

This week and next, will be spent working on making suncatchers and other small panels for consignment.  Then there are a few ‘in process’ works to clear up off the shelves, so the new patterns will wait for now, but hopefully not for very long.  = )
