Stained Glass Window Of Dragonfly

This is a delicate light and airy window of a Dragonfly. I first sketched the pattern, than hand selected the glass for the background first, green for the grass, the border and dragonfly. I took the sheet of glass for the background which is a spectrum baroque glass and laid it over top of the entire pattern to determine where I liked the flow of the glass in the pattern the best. I than cut the piece of glass in a continual pattern to keep the actual flow of the glass. I hand painted the dragonfly's body, head, and front leg's onto the glass with vitreous paint which is than fired in a kiln. While waiting for the kiln to cool I cut the glass for the leaves, border, and wings of the Dragonfly. After the fire pieces have cooled, I begin fabrication of the window in lead H channel came. I framed with zinc U channel, soldered the frame and lead joints, placed hooks at the top, and than cleaned the window. Now all there is to do is hang up and enjoy! This window was inspired by my Aunt who before she passed away told me that whenever you see a Dragonfly you know that it is me saying Hello to you. I make Dragonfly windows in memory of her. This window I made to sell for $325.00. The size is 11 1/2 x 22.
