This process was involving bonding the color bevels onto the clear bevels. Next step is to drill holes in outside came, secure glass onto banner frame.

Bevels completed and finishing up the assembly of the panel. After this is soldering all the joints where the came meets up with each other and then puttying. During the drying/hardening phase of the window putty I will be beveling color pieces that will be bonded on top of the clear bevels.

I am sure you are familiar with the yard banners with the metal frame:
I thought that it would be fun creating a glass panel that would attach to the frame.
The following is the design and some of the process of cutting the glass that will be hand beveled.

Here are some images of the evergreen tree design in process:
The white squiggly lines are the reflection of the shop lights and not part of the glass design. Next steps are to cut the zinc for the outside edge and solder then putty both front and back of the panel.

I am working on a glass panel for a client who wanted an evergreen tree like design with multiple trees and blue sky with clouds. This is the final design that was chosen by the client.
This will be framed in an oak frame which I have been varnishing so that it will be all dried and ready for when I complete the panel.
Here is an image of the panel in process.

I am excited to have the opportunity to advertise with the Vancouver Symphony! I am focusing on what I can provide for people and what need I can fulfill instead of trying to sell a product.
Here is the ad:
It will be fun to hear from people from this.

Oct 2020 I had installed 2 sidelight stained glass panels in an entryway in Wenatchee, WA. After the installation was completed the clients expressed that the transom window looked bare and the entryway incomplete. I worked on a panel for them and installed it on April 3, 2021. It really completed the entryway. The clients love the way it turned out. "It fills me with joy every morning" was one response from them.
This project was a lot of fun and emotionally rewarding.

Just completed cleaning a panel that will go into a transom window. This is a continuation of a project I installed last October in Wenatchee, WA in two sidelight windows. The client wanted to complete the entryway by having the design flow through the top window.
The installation will be first part of April. Looking forward to seeing all windows completed.

The Northern Lights Panel is installed!
The second picture shows before the installation. This is an interior space that has an opening between 2 rooms. A ledge was built in to support the stained glass.
The following images are different angles and lighting
It is so much fun to see how the glass captures the different lighting and how it the glass and light changes when viewing from different areas of the rooms.
Here are some detail shots showing the beveled glass.
The bottom 2 are from the backside of the panel.
I hope you have enjoyed seeing the process of this project and the final result.

Bonding the green triangles that have been beveled onto the clear beveled triangles throughout the design.
The picture with the exacto knife shows how the UV adhesive oozes out and once it is hardened I cut it and clean up area. The UV lamp is then placed back down for another 3 minutes to fully cure the adhesive. It is a painstaking process but the end results are quite stunning.
