Art Nouveau Style Stained Glass

This custom order for a bathroom window seemed to ideally capture the Art Nouveau Style stained glass design. I created the design to accentuate flowing lines. I enjoythe Art Nouveau style and particularly enjoy incorporating the style into my custom designs.

The window measures 30.5 inches by 29 inches.

The texture of the background opaque glass itself complements the flow of the lines of the blue-green iris and it provides light without invading privacy. As noted, the background glass also has the flowing lines and is called “everglade”. I always work to select not only the colors that fit the design but a texture that is appropriate.

I used Youghiogheny pale green Stipple glass to create the flowing leaves. For the iris blooms I used blue-green spectrum glass. In keeping with the Art Nouveau style the leaves wander around the interior of the window. I created the flowing leaves to provide balance in design.

I used 3/16 inch lead came for the window and a 1/2 inch zinc to provide additional strength as the window will hang over an existing exterior window.

Working with people on custom projects is one of the great joys of my work. Most of the time I am given an idea of the theme and style and I then incorporate the clients preferences and home decor style into the final design.

Custom Order Stained Glass Poppy Window

stained-glass-window-poppies
Th is stained glass window was created as a custom order. It is made using the copper foil method with a 3/4″ zinc frame. It is 37.25″ x 25.5″ and made for a client who intends to mount it in a light box for a wall in their home. Many custom orders start out with a very general idea. In this case it was Poppies. Carolyn will then submit small drawings for approval. Once the design is accepted the client will either come to the studio to choose glass or she will send samples for approval. This is a “one of a kind” design.
All of Carolyn’s work is signed and dated by etching into the glass in the lower right corner. She has worked with designing and constructing unique works of stained glass art for over 40 years.

Type of Glass

The clear textured glass in the background is called “Taffeta”. This texture resembles the fabric also called Taffeta. The glass allows light in but gives privacy for an entrance.The swirls in the clear glass mimic the lines in the flower itself. Picking the right glass for the design is one of Carolyn’s strong points.  The leaves are made with colored GNA (German Antique) which is unfortunately no longer being produced, and there is nothing on the market today that matches its quality and beauty.

Construction

Copper Foil Technique used with 60/40 lead. A dark patina has been applied to the lead which makes the design “pop”. The frame is made with 1/4 inch zinc channel. Hanging hooks are  incorporated into the frame and soldered into place. When you receive the panel,  attach chain or fishing line to the hooks depending on the look you desire.
