This Hippopotamus was made in 2007 . The glass was difficult to foil but made for a neat Hippo.
A number of years ago we collaborated with our scroll saw artist friend Allan Couper who did amazing work. His pieces of scroll saw allowed us to insert through the base a piece of stained glass then we used clear silicon to hold the base in place, this also allowed us to replace broken glass in the future if someone had broken theirs.
We used various colors of glass and as these Horse Silhouettes were free standing they could be reversed which provided another different silhouette view.
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.
