Current Work in Progress
I'm working on a stained glass angel. It's a reproduction form Jan Patten's the Carousel Collection. This one is the Peace Angel and I am doing it for my friends who recently had their second child. I did the Jubilation Angel for them upon the birth of their first child 2 1/2 years ago. Hopefully both of the angels will become something that is passed on to the next generation.
I thought it would be fun to post a picture of the work in progress. This stage in the creative process is challenging for me as I work to fit all of the pieces of glass together correctly. My "ah ha" moment comes much later in the process after the piece is soldered and I can actually hold it up so the light comes through it. Then I have confirmation of my glass and color choices. I can honestly say I have never been disappointed with my first glimpse of the light bringing a piece to 'life'. One of my favorite parts in the stained glass window process.
I plan to have this window done by the end of the month. Stay tuned......
