Stained Glass Week 2

March 11, 2012

At today’s class we cut all the glass for our panel.  Our fantastic tutor Jill was on hand to give plenty of practical advice on how best to tackle each stage.  Most shapes were cut using an oil filled glass scorer and running pliers but I was also introduced to a special glass saw for working on some of the more complex parts.  Next stage will be to grind away all the rough cut edges before progressing to the leading.  I can see it starting to take shape now and can’t wait to get going with the next part.

For anyone interested to find out more, there’s a great video about Jill’s Glass here.

Here’s  a couple more pictures of my work in progress:
