Custom Order Stained Glass Poppy Window

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.
