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.

A local client who’s dad loved polar bears wanted to give him a small polar bear panel. The design originated from Paned Expressions Studios Inc on their pattern disk titled “Nature’s Bounty” – “Polar Motherhood”. We used the bears design while putting them in a panel that measured 10 inches high by 12 inches wide. The original panel design measured 2 ft wide by 3 ft high.

Earlier this year we were asked if we would make a donation to the BC & Alberta Guide Dogs in support of their 1st Annual Calgary Trivia Night fundraiser which raises funds for the development of guide dogs for kids and others with Autism, as well as seeing eye dogs for Blind people.
We made this stained glass dog from a free Spectrum Glass pattern which was used as a silent auction fund raising item. It measured approximately 8 inches wide by 11 inches high. We used Wissmach 145SP glass for the majority of the dog.
The 1st Annual Calgary Trivia Night Fundraiser was most successful.
