We made this Poppy panel which measures 5 x 7 inches designed from a painting we bought while in Victoria BC. this past July 2015. It was given as a gift by our young granddaughter’s parents to her daycare provider who was returning to school. Their 2 1/2 year old daughter had a wonderful time at her 1st daycare home and they wanted to honour her dedication and help she provided for their daughter Poppy.
The next picture is the painting from which our stained glass design was taken from. The painting was done by Patricia K. Plank and she gave us her blessing to make a stained glass rendition.
Original Painting by Patricia K. Plank of British Columbia

If you check out our first posting titled “Chewie” you can learn about this wonderful dog who passed away several years ago. We showed “Chewie” many times at our markets, unfortunately he fell off a table a few years ago at one of our markets and had to be completely rebuilt.
A few weeks ago we took him out to the Sunshine Coast in British Columbia and he now hangs in Rene & Laurel’s home over looking the ocean. As “Chewie” was their dog for many years they are more than pleased that he will now be with them in stained glass for years to come. Enjoy

We have a client who is an awesome intarsia woodworker. He designed this eagle in wood and wanted to have it transformed into stained glass. In addition he and his wife wanted 2 of them each facing each other for their retreat in the West Country towards the Rocky Mountains in Central Alberta.
To facilitate this endeavour we enlisted the services of Paned Expressions Studios in Edgewood Maryland. Martha was quickly able to take the intarsia design pattern from our clients and add in the necessary lines to complete a 20 x 20 inch panel. Then using Glass Eye 2000 she reflected the design so as to have another identical design pattern.
This is the left side eagle and eventually we will display the remaining right side eagle with more pictures and details. Enjoy the first Eagle has landed.

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.
