Stained Glass Window Panel two trees with mountain river personalized

by Stained Glass Works Design Studio

THE ART:
Mountain, Sun, Valley & Trees
A mountain valley scene is created using subtle pastel colored stained glass. Two trees intertwine in the foreground. Side bars frame the window and pull both the gold and the mauve from the center of the window outward. Three dimensional brass leaves add texture to this design.

"I love the swirled pattern in baroque glass. Here I have used four different subtle shades of the swirled glass to create texture in the mountain, valley, and sky." - Linda

Panel Size 10" X 18" Made to Order

OTHER COLOR CHOICES:
This window is also available in brilliant colors (See other listings) .

THE PROCESS:
First, Linda chooses each piece of glass for beautiful color, texture and drama. Additional glass is chosen to add texture and sparkle to 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. Next, the tree dimensional leaves are added. The window is buffed, inspected, cleaned and waxed before it ever gets to the shipping stage. The window is framed in sturdy zinc with hooks included at the top. The completed window is hand packed in our unique shipping method.This panel is built with the copper foil and lead came technique with a sturdy zinc frame and then buffed and polished with glass wax.

THE ARTISTS:
About the Artists: Robert Neely and Linda Hiatt-Neely have bachelor's degrees in fine art and have been designing stained glass gifts and windows for since 1985. Linda received her master's degree in 2011 from Lesley University in Cambridge.

"I began my career with pastel drawing, oil painting and print making in an impressionistic style. I was drawn toward stained glass early in the 80s because of two reasons: the light element in glass that changes the piece depending on the hour of the day and the fact that art can be a functional piece of a home.
I choose each piece of glass like an artist blends the colors in a painting . . . but with the added dimension of light. Glass speaks to me in each design. No two windows will ever look the same because of the nature of the hand made glass. I use opacity, transparence, iridescence, as well as color and texture in each piece I make. My best work is done when clients allow me the artistic freedom to choose glass to create the best piece of art I can. " - Linda
