In the fall of 2015 I was commissioned to
make two stained glass with bevels artworks that would match an Italian marble table located in a residential
breakfast nook. The other window
matches elements from the table design while the artwork you see here
matches the other window rather than the table.
At the time I made this stained glass with bevels artwork, it was the hardest
project I had undertaken for quite a while. The bevels in the border
and in the central part of this design required very precise crafting
of the surrounding glass pieces so that the outcome would be strong and
visually perfect. The matching window
was even more intricate than this one; it is the hardest design I have
constructed with lead came in my 40 years as a stained glass
This stained glass with bevels was constructed with lead and zinc came.
The thickest leadlines are 1/2" wide, and they are lead wherever they
are curved and zinc wherever they are straight. The thinner leadlines
surrounding all of the beveled glass pieces are 3/16" lead came.
The bevels all came from ready-made clusters available from Action
Bevels, although I have rearranged them and even left some of the
beveled pieces out in order to make this design work best in the space
