Marketplace In Tanzania

I was inspired to create the original design for the stained glass window panel by the sense of community associated with open air markets. Where better to locate the market than in the exotic setting of Tanzania? I wanted to re-create the busy-ness of the market by placing a variety of characters throughout the scene.The wise man counseling the younger man beneath the tree. The village gossip waving to someone across the way. The mother and child arriving to make the daily purchase. And in the foreground, we see the scene from the perspective of the young woman approaching the marketplace. The panel was created using Tiffany-style copper foil fabrication.
