THE ART: Aspen Birch LOVE
READY TO PERSONALIZE Personalized Tree with Initials
A stained glass tree is a beautiful piece of nature symbolizing love. A special family heirloom is created with family initials and surrounding heart (or monogram) sandblasted onto the glass to create this aspen tree. (It can also be left plain with no initials.)

Black baroque glass adds sparkle and the dark border frames the window as a picture is framed.It makes a beautiful gift for an anniversary or special family memento. The sandblasting is a permanent etched legacy.

Custom MADE TO ORDER approximately 16" wide X 19.25" tall

" I love the idea of a aspen tree and designed this stained glass tree for my our home to celebrate our 30 years of marriage in a permanent piece of art. " - Linda

THE PROCESS:
First, Linda cuts the background turquoise sky and fired in the kiln to 1400 degrees. This process takes 20 hours.
Next, each piece of glass is chosen for beautiful color and texture in the balance of the design. In a time extensive process, one by one, each piece of glass is hand cut, fitted, wrapped in foil or lead came and soldered. Finally the lead is oxidized with a colored patina. The window is glazed, inspected, cleaned and waxed before it ever gets to the shipping stage. Details are added to the window making the black marks on the tree and 3 dimensional aspen leaves.

Last, the art is drawn for the initials and heart,sandblasted and painted glass paint is airbrushed into the art and sealed. The window is framed in sturdy zinc with hooks included at the top. The completed window is hand packed in our unique shipping method.
