When we first started to learn the art of stained glass we made this Just a Sip Hummingbird Panel back in 2000. The circular panel is approximately 10 inches in diameter, with an outer ring of clear glue chip glass. The blue background is a light blue Spectrum Artique #132A. We used a soft brass flexible U channel for the outside, with the channel and the solder lines all with black patina and polished using Clarity (Kemo-Pro) finishing polish. The design is one of the free design patterns offered by The Spectrum Glass Company.

This mare & foal was made for clients in 2016. The design was obtained from Spectrum’s Glass website and we enlarged the pattern to measure 12 inches wide x 8 inches high. For hanging we soldered fine silver chain into the solder seams on the back side of this suncatcher.

In 2010 we made this Alberta Mountain Circle panel. In the mountain we used Spectrum’s 6009-8CC Thunderhead Pearl Opal and Uroboros U-11-86 Blue/Green/Foam with Fracture Streamers. The foothills were made from Uroboros U65-145 LT. Brown, Emerald Green – Mystic – Green with streaks of Amber & White Opal.

In June of this year we made this for clients in Central Alberta who were giving this panel as a wedding present. The panel measures approximately 17 inches high x 31 inches wide.
Our clients found the design on the internet and lucky for them we were able to obtain the Spectrum Glass that they wanted.
We used Spectrum’s Clear White Baroque, Pearl Opals Congo & Hawkwings, Clear Crystal Ice, Brown/Gold and 1 x 1 inch bevels.
The first picture shows the completed panel before the zinc frame was attached.
The following photo was sent to us from the Bride & Groom showing their Abstract Wedding Gift Panel hanging in their new home. They were very impressed and thankful for the panel gift that will last a life time.
