totally opaque pantry door stained glass was commissioned by a very
nice couple in
Missouri. They had been living with the arched hole in their pantry
door for quite a while because they were not satisfied with the quality
of the workmanship exhibited by the stained glass artisans that they
had encountered. I'm not sure what caused them to search online and
find me, but they loved my work and my web site, and were eager to go
ahead with this commission as soon as they communicated with me.
They sent me an image of an oil painting that they wanted adapted for
this pantry door stained glass artwork. They also wanted the quotation
from Psalm 107:9 that you can see in the image. This was an ideal
situation for vinyl lettering because the amount of the lettering and
the small size of the letters would not have looked as good if done any
After I did an initial rendition of the oil painting, they helped me to
catch a few mistakes... things I had failed to assess correctly in the
painting. Although I tried to color the drawing I did for them
accurately, I knew that using all opaque glasses (because of no
lighting inside the pantry) would make picking the final glasses
tricky. They trusted me to select the glasses as I was cutting out the
glass pieces. Afterwards, we decided to re-cut a few of the pieces to
improve the final look.
This panel is copper-foiled. It measures about 19" wide by 50" tall.
Everything other than the glass has been darkened with a black patina.
