"Summer Trees" Stained Glass Window

Arts-and-Crafts era ceramics inspired this three-part stained glass window. Each panels is 30" x 32" and created with artisan-made glass. The tree leaves, for example, are made of hand-poured mottled opalescent glass while much of the rest of the window is composed of mouth-blown (sometimes called "antique") glass. The nature theme is typical of the early part of the 20th century. The three panels are constructed in the traditional lead came technique and framed in zinc. This rigid framing allows the panels to hang side-by-side in a large window or individually in three different windows. One advantage of framing instead of permanent installation is that a home-owner can easily install the stained glass window and another advantage is that the windows are easily movable.
