This project was a sidelight for the entry of a Victorian home in the Bay Area. The client wanted me to make a window that was inspired by/ or reflected on some level, the window on the second story of her home. That window looked like this:I was most interested in capturing the leaf movement, and texture of the glass. I made flowers with only four petals, and focused on designing a window that would be a presence for the entryway. I used opal jewels, mouth blown antique clear glass, mouth blown antique grey glass from Poland, and mitered the corners of the border. I also was excited to see the hourglass border “float” by surrounding it with clear glass. I wanted the window to be ornate but not overpowering. I wanted it to be welcoming and exquisite.
This window was a commission through Stained Glass Garden in Berkeley, CA.
