Paned Expressions can be seen, above, with the altered skyline and the addition of the sunflowers in the foreground, as well as the hillside vineyards.
This window is 19” x 32” in four panels, has 275 pieces of glass, used 40 yards of foil, 1-1/2 pounds of solder, and weights 8-1/2 pounds. I signed and dated it at the bottom right with a Dremel Tool and a small rounded tip engraving bit from Inland. It will be installed in my client’s home in about two weeks using short lengths of chain in the three eye hooks which I soldered to the top to evenly distribute the weight.
My client has not yet seen it but it received rave reviews at a recent gathering of friends. I haven’t yet added up the total time to build this window. I estimated it to be 35 hours but I anticipate that the actual time will be much longer. Well, when these projects turn into labors of love, who’s counting?
Thanks Rosanna, for entrusting me with your window. I hope you love it!
