A Stained Glass Dream
a work in (slow) progress
WELCOME WINTERFEST TRAVELERS!
Winterfest is always inspiring. The energy of the tunnels begets ideas.
And this week, just Thursday, I started a design for a new BatB-themed stained glass piece. No, not a full-fledged, accurately detailed “Vincent’s Window” – that’s still far beyond my novice abilities. But something at least … representative.
Right now, it’s all “on paper”, but with stained glass, that’s a big first step. I thought I’d picture here what led me to at least a “semi-final” design. (There’ll be many tweaks along the way, once I get started.)
This work of glass came through my Pinterest feed.
I’m sure you’ll see what I saw!
Vincent, of course.
And in the next moment, I thought of this …
Could I possibly make this work, I wondered?
So I got out some pencils and, after a half-dozen starts, came up with this rendering of what I thought to do.
After dozens of redrawings, resizings, and line levelings, I managed a fairly decent working pattern. It still needs a lot of work. I’m hoping to make it a large piece – at least 22 x 16 inches – because larger cuts of glass are so much easier to shape and foil!
Hopefully, by next Winterfest, I’ll have something more to show you than this. It might turn out to be more than I can handle, but dreams are so necessary. Wish me luck!
Thanks for visiting! Happy Winterfest, everyone!
