Mary's Winged Heart is gorgeous. This piece is all about the deep curves which you normally don't see in stained glass. If you go out of your way and add extra time and effort to a piece it always pays off and this Heart proves it. Instead of merely surrounding the heart these wings gently embrace it. Mary has outdone herself with this one.
Here's the first of three Santa Faces that Linda L has completed for three Lanterns that she will replace the clear glass panels with. Each side of the Lantern will feature a different Christmas scene so expect to see some Christmas Trees, some Reindeer, and a few snowmen as well in the weeks to come.
Lisa's got two Flower Angels finished and we'll be seeing even more of these when she returns next week. She's on a roll and has made one of these as Flowerpot Ornament (hence the stake). Things are looking good for her as she prepares for a show coming up in Centerville and I believe she'll do quite well there.
This is the last of Susan D's Birch on a Branch series because she's officially made the entire set. Her pieces got more and more detailed as she honed her painting skills on each successive bird. I remember when a single drop of glass paint was a great eye, but now she provides eyes with pupils and multicolored spots on some of the birds feathers.
Next we look at the Wedding Invitation that Martha began. She got all of the tiny leaves cut from three different yet similar shades of green glass and then got everything ground as well. Once this has been wrapped and tacked together she'll cut out the background glass and then finish the box lid for a beautiful wedding gift.
Shawn's new window goes out to the Krewe of Hera. This Hera Flag Window will be made in three sections and then tacked together to form one window. With her Greek style lettering already cut out the center third of this window is well under way.
Steve has got another Wine Glass in the works but this one is considerably smaller than his first. It still looks just as good and Steve made sure that this was PERFECTLY symmetrical unlike so many other wine glass projects that I see when I'm online looking at stained glass. The man has an eye for detail.
Ann finished grinding her version of the Winged Heart as well as a Wrought Iron Cross while she was in. Once her work at the grinder was completed she began foiling her pieces. I'm thinking that there will be some soldering going down on these when Ann returns.
