This steampunk stained glass artwork, The Truth Behind the Weather, is currently for sale.

Steampunk is a sub-genre of science fiction based on the notion of what the present and future might look like if steam power had never been replaced by electricity and/or internal combustion. Steampunk art and steampunk literature are gaining popularity, and I wanted to create something in this relatively new genre.

Although first attempts at photographing my work usually produce only decent results, the photo above is actually quite good. The wide gray band in the flywheel that the pendulum is attached to is darker in the actual artwork, but everything else looks pretty good.

While many of the colors are washed out in this image to the left, this first detail photo shows the fairly large size of this fantasy stained glass hanging in my front window. 

Although I doubt that many artisans create weather-themed stained glass artworks, my attempts at design always start out with just a general idea of the subject matter and they end up where they end up. I actually started out to make a steampunk design about love, and the inspiration for this weather related stained glass came to me in the middle of that effort. I completed both designs, and decided to make this one first. The one about love may or may not come to be realized in glass. In any case, I am totally in love with this one!

weather stained glassThis second detail photo shows the lettering, which is all done in sticky vinyl. It also gives a closer view of the lightning bolts, which are overlays made of solder-covered zinc.

My attempt at fantasy steampunk art is made with 3/16" lead in the human figures and gears, 3/8" lead in the background bricks and sky, and 1/2" lead in the fan-belts. All lead and solder has been darkened to a charcoal gray with a chemical patina. The wood frame is painted flat black, with a clear satin (not glossy) polyurethane finish.

The white in the "FAiR" and "NOT FAiR" boxes is solid white, the white in the humanoid figures is an opaque wispy white, and the white in the clouds is an iridized white, which means it has a very slight pink and turquoise tinge to it in the daytime and will look VERY shiny and colorful at night, when light is bouncing off the surface of the glass rather than coming through the glass.









great stained glassThe stained glass measures just over 40" wide by 32" high. With the wood frame, the total size is 46" wide by 38" inches high.

The price of this steampunk stained glass is $3900.00. Contact me for a price that includes insured shipping if you do not live within 100 miles of Denver.
