“Autumn in Krakow with Raven” – next episode…

Share

My first crow flew to London through my shop on ETSY, so it is time now for another stained glass panel in this series. The composition with dark window frame did not change, but the panorama of the city will be a bit more distinct and detailed. And the bird will be also different, more dynamic …

The composition goes to the kiln several times during the creation process. Each color and each form painted on glass is in fact a thin layer of powder that can be removed accidentally with finger or brush, so every layer must be solidified in the kiln in 700 degrees Celsius before the next layer / shape / colour …

“Autumn in Krakow with Ravens” – follow up

“The Raven” enters the realization phase. I make the plan of lead and glass cuts in SketchUp:

Then I cut the glass as designed on the plan :

The next step involves going back and forth between the paint table and the kiln. First I paint the contours with the black line and I fix them in the kiln, and then I create the gradients of clouds:

Finally it is time to mount all glass parts in lead profiles. I hope to be able to show the panel ready soon.

Little window

I would like to present my latest project “Little Window 01” (number one let hope that other windows will follow). The wooden frame has been saved from destroyed house in Lower Silesia (Western Poland)…

The stained glass panel is influenced, like many in this gallery, by works of Frank Lloyd Wright.

 

Wall lamp “PRL”

Then the glass elements have been assembled in Tiffany technique.
