This panel is 16 inches in diameter. Only Spectrum’s Waterglass was used. The panel hangs in Cabinet of Curiosities Gallery in Stettler, Alberta. The Gallery owner who is an art Instructor wanted a piece of stained glass that would show case art and colors in the entrance to their gallery.
When we saw this tiger design in the Winter 2000 Edition of Glass Patterns Quarterly we knew that we had to make it. This was the first large panel we made and the panel measures 20 x 28 inches. We used a darker background which makes this Bengal Tiger appear more menacing. No matter how large the room is he is always looking at you. With the use of protruding wire whiskers and foil overlay stripes makes him appear very real. He has been featured on several websites in Canada and the USA and hangs in our living room. A truly one of a kind piece of stained glass that we have enjoyed everyday for many years.
This Celtic Knot design was incorporated into a panel by Ila Press, which we enlarged to measure 28 inches square. Only Bullseye Art Glass was used in this copper foil project. This panel is an example of what can be done with art glass.
On the North Shore of the island of Kauai Hawaii lies Kee Beach. This is the beach used in the TV mini series the Thorn Birds. This panel measures 30 x 38 inches and was commissioned for home near Edmonton Alberta. We used black patina on the solder seams, except for the large rocks, which were left silver for effective contrast.
This Owl fits our desire to portray wildlife in a most realistic manner. The panel with the frame measures approx 2 feet x 3 feet. The frame was constructed by Robert Bryce Designs of Innisfail and made from birch saplings cut in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains west of Innisfail. This Owl was accepted by Parks Canada – 2007 Brilliance of Birds Stained Glass Art Show – Kootenay National Park – held at Radium Hot Springs British Columbia, and now hangs in a home in Radium BC.
