Cattail and Dragonfly Suncatcher
An Introduction to Stained Glass
Design, Fabrication, and Text by Barbara Zimmer
A free-form stained glass panel featuring a dragonfly resting among cattails. Interest is added by letting the dragonfly’s wings and cattail heads extend beyond the border. Using streaky and rough-rolled glasses also add texture to the design. This project was constructed using the copper foil technique.

Exploding Star
Design and Rendering by Sara Guyol, Text by Delynn Ellis
A 6" x 6" stained glass quilt square design from Aanraku Studios. Wispy glass and careful attention to the placement of the glass grain help to create visual interest and the look that the star points are radiating from the center of the design. This project was constructed using the copper foil technique.

Water Lily
Design, Fabrication, and Text by Lidia K. Anderson
A free-form, three-dimensional stained glass water lily cut from variegated colored glass. Solder-filled eye pins are used to create the stamens for the flower. The finished piece is mounted on a mirrored panel. This project was constructed using the copper foil technique.

Vintage Swimsuit
Design and Text by Chantal Paré
A stained glass design featuring the flapper-style swimsuits that were popular during the 1920s. Bold shades of red, yellow, black, and white add to the striking appearance of the suit as it stands out against the blues of the Mystic Streaky glass background. This project was constructed using the copper foil technique.

Design, Fabrication, and Text by Sam Milana
Photography by Angelika Milana, Michael Sutton, Susan Andring, and Sam Milana
An 18" tall by 12" wide stained glass replica of the Michigan Presque Isle lighthouse. The 10-sided tower was planned using the polygon feature of Glass Eye 2000 software and is assembled using an angled jig to help connect the sides. This project was constructed using the copper foil technique.

Classic Corvette
Design by Paned Expressions Studios, Text by Delynn Ellis
A 31" x 20" stained glass panel of a 1956 Chevrolet Corvette, the iconic symbol for road trips on Route 66. Careful selection of the grays and blues and attention to the glass grain make a realistic mountain background for this design. This project was constructed using the copper foil technique.

Nostalgic Candy Collage
Design, Fabrication, and Text by Chantal Paré
A colorful stained glass design featuring a collage of candy store goodies. Stencil black details and a matte layer are applied and fired to set using the provided firing schedules. The design pieces are assembled in a jig before soldering the panel. This project was constructed using the copper foil technique.

Yorkshire Rose
Design by Kevin Thornhill, Text by Darlene Welch
A 14" x 24" stained glass panel featuring a large stylized rose and heart. Streaky glasses were selected to define the shape and direction of the various design elements. The motif also lends itself to selecting various color schemes to match any decor. This project was constructed using the copper foil technique.

Beach Vibes
Design and Text by Leslie Gibbs
A 9" x 9-1/2" stained glass panel that celebrates the beach ball and flip-flop days of summer. The free-form border adds interest to the design.

Pigs
Design by Paned Expressions Studios, Text by Darlene Welch
A 32" x 20 1/2" stained glass panel featuring two cute little piggies peeking over the barnyard fence. Careful selection of the glass colors and grain direction help to add realism and depth to the wooden fence slats. This project was constructed using the copper foil technique.

Flaming Flamingo Panel
Creating Fused Art with Modeling Glass
