This Dove Angel’s dress was made from one piece of Spectrum’s Peppermint Pink Baroque Glass. You will notice that the glass matches across the pieces, it is tricky glass cutting and some of it is cut using our Taurus Ring ring saw. If we break a piece when cutting or crack a piece when soldering, then we start all over with another piece of glass. This angel measures approximately 7 inches wide by 9 inches high.

This Infinity Star was the 3rd prize giveaway in Windows of the West Stained Glass Facebook Like Contest where we wanted to reach 175 likes. This piece was won by Rita M, who lives in Central Alberta. Our winners are randomly drawn from the total likes, which now number some 183. It is our intention to run another contest with another free piece of our stained glass to be given away in the spring of 2013. This Infinity Star was composed of Red Bullseye and Spectrum Clear Crystal Ice Iridescent Glass.

In 2009 we made this for a client who’s wife was from Japan. Upon her arrival in Canada she fell in love with the beauty of our Dandelions. He asked us to make a stained glass Dandelion in a pottery ring that he had made for us, to commemorate her appreciation of the Dandelion, which she now enjoys year round.

In the fall of 2011 we started a Facebook contest to increase the number of Likes and our 1st goal was to reach 125 Likes on our www.facebook.com/windowsofthewest Facebook pages. Our 1st winner was Karen R who lives in Southern Alberta. We intend on restarting this contest in the future, however before doing so we have 2 more winners, stained glass prizes to put on our website. Enjoy and of course a big thank you to all those stained glass fans who support our Web and Facebook sites.
