wildlife art in stained glass goes, herons are a bit
overused, in my opinion. For that reason, I wanted to
create a heron themed stained glass artwork that would be truly
Success! This artwork
turned out so well, we're enjoying in our home until you decide to
enjoy it in yours! It truly is stunning, or so my mother told
me when she last visited.
The heron, the stone bridge,and the
background of trees in autumn combine in a breathtaking way.
This heron stained glass artwork is copper-foiled. The incorporation of
many tiny pieces of
glass (over a hundred in the bridge alone) and some very odd shaped
pieces makes copper foil the right choice for an artwork such as this.
The process of copper foiling so many tiny and convoluted pieces of
glass is very hard on my hands, especially my fingernails, but the end
result is worth a few days of tender fingertips and mangled fingernails.
|This artwork is
17 1/4" wide and 40 3/8" tall, including the custom
made walnut frame. The solder that covers all of the copper foil has
been patina-ed with a black patina, which makes all of the leadlines
look charcoal gray.
The price of this artwork was
$2400.00. This artwork was purchased by the owner of a store in Aspen,
Colorado, and it now hangs there, I believe.
