Stained glass work

Post by Evert van der Plas »

Hi Gents
i start with making fish and birds from glass called Tiffany, made a first kingfisher just to see how it go's.
I used colored glass that i cut out and solder all the bits to gather to one piece and must say it is very satisfying to make things from glass.
i want to improve the technique and make quality stained glass fish and birds on natural wood
let me know what you think :-)

Great stuff Evert - no mean feat to create like this in glass - superb.

Very clever and stunning to look at.
If you have no grease with you, and your rings are full of ice, do not cut out the ice with a pen-knife but get your man to put the rings one by one in his mouth, and so to thaw the ice.

This is Tiffany and with this technique you use copper tape that go round the glass particles when it is all done all parts will be soldered to gather

Those are very good.
The Kingfisher is very impressive for your first attempt.
