One of the fun crafts I began this spring was stained glass. Rob and I thought that it would be fun to take a class together, and we found a local teacher and joined for a couple of 6 week sessions.
I concentrated on the copper foil method of joining pieces.
I found it very satisfying, like putting together a colorful puzzle.
Close up of my rose. The copper foil sticks to edges of the glass. Solder is then melted onto the copper foil to create a strong bond. Of all the techniques to learn, soldering was the most challenging to master.
I made several windows before putting glass work on the back burner for a while. Maybe I will work with colored glass again this winter to brighten the rainy days. For now finished panels and pieces of glass line my studio windows, inspiring me to imagine new designs.
Thanks for joining me today. I wish you a creative day!
