    Flat Work - Glass

    Our family room, where we spend most of our time, has nice south facing windows but little privacy from the neighbors. This is the first of several stained glass windows on my honey do list to help alleviate the problem--while keeping the orchids happy. Inspired by some windows my son-in-law was restoring from a house built in 1923 in Moore, Oklahoma. Prairie style I guess. 28" x 37" with hand ground 1/4" glue chip beveled glass perimeter and 1/4" beveled clear center elements with dichroic highlights. Framed in walnut and attached to the window so it doesn't interfere with opening. My first window--took me a week. I hope the other five go faster

    Great job Ted! Are they leaded or foil method? I finally got my stained glass back from storage and am trying to get in the swing of doing some again. I've got a couple of accounts with suppliers. I was surprised to see how much 60/40 solder has gone up. I last bought 10 rolls at $1.50 each, cheapest I could find was about $13 each now.

    Anyway, thanks for the inspiration

    Thanks Darren...they are leaded. Nothings cheap anymore ...but a lot of this was scraps from my son in law's glass studio.

    Beautiful work Ted....

    The orchids are beauties also... they seem to enhance each other i.e glass and Orchids...

    thanks for the photos...
