Spirit of the Fox
Design, Fabrication, and Text by Michelle Carlson
A 16" x 19-3/4" stained glass panel featuring a red fox. The dark background and golden diamond shape add dimension and depth to the design. Using a photo of an actual fox helps to plan the placement of glass grains and colors. This project was constructed using the copper foil technique.

Screen Printed Glass Pendants

An assortment of glass shapes used as a base for screen printed pendants. A Kokopelli design is transferred to the glass and a screen is made from the dark negative using light-sensitive ProScreen™ material and exposing it to UV light.

Birds of a Glass Feather

A dream catcher wall hanging made with assorted sizes of fused glass feathers. Opaque and iridescent glass pieces give the piece variety. The project lends itself to selecting various glass colors and types as desired to match a particular room decor. The glass pieces are fused together to form each individual feather.

Big Wave
Design by Paned Expressions Studios, Text by Delynn Ellis
A 20" x 16" stained glass panel featuring huge waves heading for shore. A glass saw would be suitable for cutting the intricate, curvy pieces that make up the design, but pattern and cutting modifications could be made to suit tools that the artist knows best. The project was constructed using the copper foil technique.

Call of the Wild
Design by Mary Harris, Text by Delynn Ellis
A 24" x 30" stained glass panel featuring three wolves howling at the moon. The moonlit scenery is done in deep wispy and opal colors from Wissmach. Careful selection of the glass grain and colors helps to add realism to the design. This project was constructed using the copper foil technique.
