Stained Leaded Glass

March 4, 2012

I’ve just had an enjoyable morning at the first of 4 classes with The Newfangled Glass Company preparing my design for a stained leaded glass panel.

I took my inspiration from some antique tiles to complement the period of my house.  The course tutor Jill Conlan provided great advice on how to adapt and translate the source images into an original design which could be worked in glass and lead.  Jill was also fantastic in helping me to select the best glass to give the piece an authentic period feel, including some old decorative roundels which will be recycled in my panel.

Here are a few pics of my progress:
