Traditional Windows are timeless and MiMi's first of a pair that she is making is a perfect example of why these designs are always so popular. Everything is 'right' about this window and MiMi's attention to detail sells it all the way through. Nice straight lines, curves that flow effortlessly and a soldering job that almost looks as though this was made with lead came just add to the stateliness of this beauty.
Next we take a more modern approach to the art of stained glass by looking at Linda F's Abstract Curves Window which features a generous amount of color and flow. In order not to overuse color Linda has offset the design with various clear textured glasses to provide separation which prevents the window from becoming a mishmash of color. I think she's balanced it all out wonderfully!
Let made this stunning Red Rosebud Panel and decided to set it off with a thin red accent border. This just screams of Summertime and her work throughout it is as lovely as the bud itself.
All good things take time and Kerry's Poinsettia Window is certainly no exception. He was hoping to have it ready in time for Christmas of 2022 but the glass manufacturer that makes the 'seasonal' glass that Kerry wanted for the background didn't begin shipping the glass until the week before Christmas! By the time we got it in the shop the holiday was over. Kerry isn't going to wait though and he's continuing on with this window which is going to be amazing. That background glass definitely worth the wait. Look out because this is going to turn every head that sees it. Stunning!
And there you have it. Things are really picking up again in the shop and we're starting to produce a lot of projects again. There's always a lull right after the holidays but that lull has officially ended!
