Latest GOG Window - The Guardian

Hello...it's been a while since I've last posted and wanted to share my latest window. It is approx. 36"x24". I made the frame out of wood and painted it black with an antiqued gold wash. I remember this picture as a child and have always liked it so I thought I'd try to create my own version in glass.

ADDIE: I absolutely love your style of GOG. I've told you this b/f, but want to repeat. The shapes of your tess, and your placement are what make your work stand out as a style that makes me happy and smile. Tell me - do you nip your glass randomly or do you strive for certain shapes for certain areas. For example - on the peacock - the white that surrounds the blue on the tail feathers, your wings on birds, angels and the flower petals, leaves etc., and on the pantry door - I could go on here - the sides - the way you outline the door frame - looks almost like cables. The way you place your glass makes such a difference and creates movement. Gorgeous work.

Thanks everyone!

Calamitythe tree is on my Flickr page but not in the slide show since its not stained glass. But I think you can get out of the slide show and to my page.

Slowmedown.You warm my heart! Thank you! I really dont have any method to my madness. When I start to cut I do have a direction or pattern that I just naturally start to cut. I start on the edge of the glass cutting upwards in a wavy pattern. I start crisscrossing the pattern with the second score/cut. Sometimes I think thats the only pattern Im capable of free-handing without physically drawing lines on my glasslol. Im left handed so everything tends to go in that direction I think.lol. You know that saying, "Going around the world making a left hand turn", thats me! Im not sure what you meant about the outline of the peacock doormaybe the trim? There is wood trim around the door which started out as plain trim. I cut a zig-zag pattern on the outer edge using a band saw and then formed and pressed leaves over each point using wood puttythen I stained it once the putty had cured. I don know if any of this makes sense but hopefully it does. Thanks again!

No - it wasn't the wood trim. It is the shape of the glass next to your wood frame. They are placed so beautifully. Sorta like a leaf shape. Your placement of the pieces creates almost a cable. So as I understand - you cut a strip then start nipping it criss crossing - randomly. Absolutely love those shapes and how you place each one.
