Hello all, and happy new year! One of my turn-of-the-calendar goals was to do more Highlight Reals, so here we go:
Highlight Real, New Year’s edition
(That makes it extra fancy, no?)
I was lucky to have an opportunity to spend part of New Year’s Day at a stained glass studio, and it was breathtaking. The first few images are glass samples, and they are pure eye candy. I want to make a quilt out of every single one. The last image gives you a sense of just how big the wall-sized displays are that hold the playing card-sized bits of glass.
The next few pics are snippets of my favorite piece, a 6 ft. (approx. 2 meter) tall round window that was discovered in an elevator shaft. Seriously folks, do not store something like this in an elevator shaft. It was stunning beyond words, and if I ever create something as gorgeous as this in my lifetime, whoever owns it had better not stuff it somewhere or I will haunt them from the afterlife.
Those blues, no? Huge thanks to @instagrahamfox for the unforgettable tour, and for helping me start 2022 on such an inspiring note.
Happy new year, everyone.
OMG that is a huge gift to start the new year and a creative process. That piece could not be anymore exquisite. Everything about it is almost too beautiful to believe it was handmade. There are so many lost arts these days and this is a fabulous reminder of what could be!
What inspiration you were blessed with!!!!
Happy New Year and Happy dreaming
Isn’t it exquisite?? There was a Tiffany that blew my mind as well – the glass was folded to mimic drapery. I’ve never seen anything like it.
Happiest of New Years to you!
So beautiful! The detail is incredible. I have been thinking about doing a stained glass workshop for sometime now 🙂
You should!! I’ve always wanted to learn. Post pics if you do!
