New Garden Stone

I loved the stained glass suncatcher so much, I had to make a garden stone for my yard with the same design and colors.

Flowering Plant Suncatcher

I love to garden and have many plants in pots on our patio. We have terrible earth here, lots of rocks and sand. I saw this pattern in an Ed Sibbett book and was anxious to make it out of stained glass. I made this piece with Bullseye and Uroboros hand rolled glass. It really makes stunning stained glass pieces. This piece will be hanging in a good friends home as soon as I get it packed up and shipped.

Valentine Hearts

I've been enjoying working on some stained glass projects for the last few days. It's been a nice break from mosaics. I made these 2 hearts -- one is small 4"x4" and the red one is larger 7"x7". It's been fun to experiment with different glass and adding just one bevel to each heart really seems to accent these pieces.
