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 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.
The next picture shows the start of the panel construction.

A local client wanted one of our Abstract Cats. This one was made using Spectrum’s Black White Clear Baroque Glass. We also used Spectrum’s Pale Green/Aqua Blue Waterglass for the collar. Unfortunately with the closing of the Spectrum Glass Company later this year, many neat varieties of stained glass will eventually no longer be available.

Here is the finished Abstract Cat.
A local client who’s dad loved polar bears wanted to give him a small polar bear panel. The design originated from Paned Expressions Studios Inc on their pattern disk titled “Nature’s Bounty” – “Polar Motherhood”. We used the bears design while putting them in a panel that measured 10 inches high by 12 inches wide. The original panel design measured 2 ft wide by 3 ft high.

Earlier this year we were asked if we would make a donation to the BC & Alberta Guide Dogs in support of their 1st Annual Calgary Trivia Night fundraiser which raises funds for the development of guide dogs for kids and others with Autism, as well as seeing eye dogs for Blind people.
We made this stained glass dog from a free Spectrum Glass pattern which was used as a silent auction fund raising item. It measured approximately 8 inches wide by 11 inches high. We used Wissmach 145SP glass for the majority of the dog.
The 1st Annual Calgary Trivia Night Fundraiser was most successful.
