A Couple Pieces of Stained Glass

Hi everyone! I'm happy to be joining Sally for Blue Monday and Sue for Rednesday today, please stop over to enjoy other great posts!
I was really devoted to stained glass a few years ago and I bought a small kiln. It quickly turned into one of my favorite things, I call it "painting with glass". I could cut and shape colored glass, lay it on a clear piece then fire it to 1650 degrees creating a "tile". Then I'd work that tile into a traditional stained glass panel. This small zinnia type panel is one of my rustic pieces, others I spent a lot of time grinding and shaping. 
  

This little cutie is looking for a good home! I call it "Determination - Today I'm going in!".
It's 17" x 12", I drew the pattern and it is one of a kind, e-mail me if interested.
Not the best pictures but my house has eaves and doesn't allow good light for stained glass pictures (ugh)
Have a happy day!

  2. Now that is fun!
    I learned to create stained glass as a young girl and would love to try it again. I have not seen the glass bonded together like that. How sweet!

  7. Gorgeous! And I heard you can make a killing in stain glass! Seriously, my brother wanted us to take a class on it a couple of years ago. There is just something about stained glass!

  9. This is beautiful. I love stained glass and this is a great way to make something you can be proud of. I worked a little in stained glass but it was so much harder than I dreamed. I admire your work very much. Keep grinding. It is worth the effort.

    I also want to comment on your beautiful daffodils. Your PS post is beautiful. I have never seen such gorgeous daffodils. Around here they grow wild, but only yellow. I was surprised with a couple clumps of double ones this spring in the nearby woods.

    Have a wonderful day.
    Hugs, Jeanne

  10. Wow, that would be such a wonderful hobby; I love what you have done. One of my friends does this on the side and she was chosen and designed a neat stained glass for Table Rock State Park here in SC. (not sure if Table Rock is 2 words?). She has done some things all around our town.
