Stained Glass



 I'm way out of my comfort zone.  My wife found out our adult son was doing beautiful stained glass windows and now she has commissioned the both of us to do one for her birthday.  

We have a long window at the side of our front-door she wants to fill. I've never done anything like this before and this is larger than anything our son has done.  I designed an original paper pattern, did a photoshop overlay of the actual glass choices on my layout to see how it would look and inserted it into a photo of the window space. Now our son is busy building the panel using the pattern.

Here's what we've got so far.  I'm curious to see the finished piece!


Mock up of the design placed in window


Original design and color version with sampled glass choices over-layered.


P.S.  I just saw some photos of the work in progress and it's better than I expected.  The straight lines have been softened with curves that simulate water, and other details are added.  We are very excited now!  

Work in progress looking good!






 

A new update came in. This is the glass installed in the window!
