Iris Panel Restoration December 2021

This restoration was done for a family whose mother’s name was Iris. They had obtained this beautiful Iris panel a number of years ago to honor her. Unfortunately the original stained glass artist had not made a secure enough frame and the panel eventually fell and was broken. The panel measured approximately 21.5 inches high by 23.5 inches wide.

After completing the restoration we surrounded the panel with 1/2 inch zinc came, complete with hanging rings and chain.

The next photo shows the broken panel. We overlaid the broken panel with white freezer paper and then did a rub to obtain a pattern to work from for the restoration.

Garden Bee and Poppy 2020

One of our clients often closes her messages with a Buzzzzzz notation which prompted us to design a rod poppy with a bumble bee attached as a gift to her.

This is another design to our Garden collection of plant pokes.

Garden Butterfly & Poppy

We were asked by our granddaughter Poppy if we could make a Garden Poppy with a Butterfly for her teacher. From her suggestion we came up this design of a Poppy flower, with a small Butterfly attached.

With a rod attached this is another enhancement to our Garden collection of rod Butterflies, Dragonflies, Frogs and Ladybugs.

Yellow Rose Bud Panel December 2016

This Yellow Rose bud was commissioned as a Christmas present. The design was originally a square panel which we placed into a 10 inch circular panel surrounded by a soft flexible brass U channel. Eventually our client returned the panel so we could attach a fine silver chain for hanging in the window of their home.

The following photo shows the beginning of the panels construction.
