Today is the first day of Spring 2012 and what better way to celebrate it’s arrival with an example of our glass.
We made and donated this 3D Tulip Dutch Shoe in 2010 to the Order of Eastern Star as a silent auction fund raiser item.
This is the first window we made. They were triangle in shape, located over a large living room window. The dinning area was elevated and the shape of these windows made it difficult for window coverings. The stained glass still allowed lots of light but provided privacy for the home owners especially in the evenings when the house lights were on. We used a pink Bullseye Glass that shows red during the day and pink at night depending on one viewing from inside the home or from outside looking in. Unfortunately we did not have the benefit of a digital camera in 2002 so do not have the best photos. Our clients a number of years later sold this home in Edmonton and had to leave these windows behind but the new owners were happy they did.
This lamp was enlarged from the original pattern to 20 inches in diameter. This lamp is held in a private collection and used daily.
