Large panels are a favourite for me to explore the possibilities of stained glass. The larger size allows for more complex designs and a larger showcase for some of the beautifully unique glass I include in my pieces. I have recently started including engraved text in some of these pieces to add interest and depth. Inspiration comes largely from prairie plants and wildlife but I do wander off into modernist pieces as well when the spirit moves me.
It is a wonderful challenge to take something as hard and unforgiving as sheet glass and make it flow and sing as a work of art.
