I thought that I would go through and explain the design process on individual pieces of art both glass and painting.  The first one is a glass piece titled Windblown. 
The client talked about how there is a lot of wind in that area and they have a tree outside this window.  They wanted to still operate the hand crank and locking mechanism to open the window to allow air in.  I created a design to tie in with the outside elements such as the tree and wind.  I also bent the framing of the stained glass to allow space to utilize the hand crank and allow air flow into the space.  All leaves were hand beveled with colored glass beveled and bonded on top of the clear bevel.  Very difficult panel to fabricate.
