You can see how the two panels are beginning to evolve. This is just beginning of the journey for these two pieces of art. I will continue to post the progress as this commission must be done within the next month. Still more glass designs will be added. An antique Chandler which belonged to the customer's grandmother is being incorporated within as well as antique glass from the Aldridge Hotel in Shawnee, Oklahoma. The historic old hotel located near main street is now turned into a upscale senior living project. When they began the renovation years ago I saw all of the things they were taking out of the hotel to throw away. I asked a gentleman what they were going to do with the old glass and he said.."Do you want it?" and I said "SURE". It is beveled and very thick.
Once the glass has all been cut, each piece will be individually foiled, soldered, then covered with a copper patina process. The end design will look antique, edgy, intricate and elegant. The more you look, the more you will see.....stay tuned!!!
