Stained Glass Window Panel ~twilight~ Clear, Bevels, Small Transom Or Sidelight:
Thisstunning stained glass window panel combines delicate clear faceted bevels with sparkling dichroic bevels. The dichroic bevels are a fairly new process and have a special metallic overlay that changes colors from bright gold to aqua blue, to ice blue to purple depending on your angle of viewing and the position of light. Dichroic bevels transmit one color while reflecting others, creating an effect similar to the iridescence you see in hummingbird feathers or dragonfly wings.
Twilight is hand-crafted created using the Tiffany copper foil technique. It featuresfaceted clear bevels combined with 4 of the bright dichroic bevels, creating the feeling of stars surrounded by prisms of of light in the magic twilight sky.
The piece is completed with hand polished black patina and has a darkened zinc frame with rings on all four corners and chain for hanging. It can be displayed either vertically or horizontally making it ideal for a window area, sidelight or transom. The movement of the design and play of light through the bevels is truly beautiful with any orientation.
Twilight is my original design and is signed and dated.

About the Artist
I have been working with stained glass for a little over 17 years. My studio is in the San Jacinto Valley, which is a rural area of Southern California about 60 miles west of Palm Springs.
Every glass piece that I create is a "labor of love". Designing a pattern, choosing the colors and textures of glass, and then cutting and fitting each piece together is such a calming, joyful experience - especially if a piece turns out the same way I envisioned it would.
I'm quite slow in creating my glass works, but that's okay, as I love the process. The time honored, sage advice to stained glass artisans is "design it well and build it strong", and that is what I strive to do. A well-crafted stained glass piece should last a lifetime, and hopefully become a treasured family heirloom.
All of my art glassworks are handcrafted andoriginals. Occasionally I will use a pattern for a portion of the piece, but the selection of glass, the compositionand the completed work is always original.
Thank you for viewing my work.
