Sometime ago we obtained some old Spectrum Iridescent glass that was in an old lamp that could not be fixed. In return we made this butterfly which measures approximately 7 inches wide by 9 inches high. The initial design was titled Butterfly Blues however the lady from Red Deer who gave us the green iridescent glass wished for a butterfly using some of that glass and this is what we made for her. In addition to the green glass being iridescent so are those yellowish oval pieces.
The design was obtained from Suzanne Cooper and Donna Schulze who we met in 1999 in Apache Junction Arizona. Donna was a wonderful person who along with her daughter ran a stained glass studio, where we initially purchased glass and supplies, unfortunately a few years later we learned of the passing of Donna Schulze.

With winter just around the corner this group of Garden Butterflies, Lady Bugs and Dragonflies have been gathered from their many garden places and are about to be packaged up and put away till next spring. It is a pretty sight to see them all together in a large pot before heading into winter’s storage.

In 2011 we were asked to make a loon panel for the Order of the Eastern Star to be used as a gift to the Worthy Grand Patron of Alberta. This panel was approximately 12 inches wide by 9 inches high. For the hills we used Uroboros Harringbone glass. The loon was cut from one piece of Spectrum’s Black/White Clear Baroque. The dark water under the loon was a piece of Kokomo with Spectrum Sky Blue Wispy for the rest of the water.

A few weeks ago we were asked to provide a client with a yellow rose for a gift. This is what we came up with using Spectrum Glass and it measured approximately 5 1/2 x 4 1/2 inches.

The Gladiola flower is represented in the alphabet letter “G”. We believe that we made this suncatcher letter about 10 – 12 years ago. As Gladiolas’s come in many colors one can choose different flower and letter colors to suit the tastes and decor of whom they plan on giving one to or for their own home.
