Here is another butterfly # 2 made many years ago. It measures approximately 5 x 5 inches.

A client in Calgary has had this Elephant suncatcher for many years, unfortunately the thin wire hanging rings that were attached to the outside foil eventually came apart from the sunshine window heat.
Luckily the piece was rescued before falling and breaking. We then soldered fine silver chain into the reverse seams, followed by patina touch up, cleaning (Kwik Clean) and polishing (Clarity Stained Glass Finishing Compound).
The Elephant measures approximately 12 x 12 inches. The original unknown stained glass artist did a great job in using Spectrum’s Glass, unfortunately with the soon closing of The Spectrum Glass Company their glass will eventually no longer be available.
This mare & foal was made for clients in 2016. The design was obtained from Spectrum’s Glass website and we enlarged the pattern to measure 12 inches wide x 8 inches high. For hanging we soldered fine silver chain into the solder seams on the back side of this suncatcher.

A local client wanted one of our Abstract Cats. This one was made using Spectrum’s Black White Clear Baroque Glass. We also used Spectrum’s Pale Green/Aqua Blue Waterglass for the collar. Unfortunately with the closing of the Spectrum Glass Company later this year, many neat varieties of stained glass will eventually no longer be available.
The first picture shows the cat, foiled and ready for soldering
Here is the finished Abstract Cat.
