A 14" round floral panel with expanded instructions offering an introduction to stained glass construction techniques and tools. Tips for selecting cutters, scoring and breaking the glass, selecting and applying copper foil, and constructing the panel are included. There is also a list of breaking tools and descriptions for how they work. This project was constructed using the copper foil technique.

Quilting with Glass
Design by Marianne Crivellaro
An 8" x 8" geometric panel with quilt design. The pattern contains forty-five- and ninety-degree angles, which makes it perfect for using the Morton Portable Glass Shop. A myriad of color combinations is possible for this project, which was constructed using the copper foil technique.

Design by Mark Waterbury
A 22?1/8" x 22?1/8" butterfly panel. The intricate detailing of the eighty small white dots on the wings are created using six pieces of glass with foil overlay applied. There are a lot of pieces used for the flowers, but they are easy to cut. This project was constructed using the copper foil technique. The pattern in this issue can be enlarged, or full-sized pattern #135 may be purchased from Glass Patterns Quarterly.

Stylized Chickadees
Design by Casey Koller
A set of 4" x 5" and 4" x 3-1/2" free-form suncatchers. These birds are part of the well-loved designs of Casey Koller, who offered his work through various shops and catalogs, including the National Audubon Society Gift Shop and Catalog. The projects were constructed using the copper foil technique.

Buckaroo Boots
Design by Leslie Gibbs
Three free-form Western-style boots. The detailing on these fused suncatchers can be applied using overlay or by sandblasting in a purchased or homemade blasting booth. Wasser glass is used for these projects.

Expert Tips with Vicki Payne
Renowned art glass instructor, Vicki Payne, reminds us that in addition to the customary pattern books, there is a wealth of design sources for stained glass projects to be found in traditional, historic art forms.

Rhododendron Panel

Design by Robert Oddy
A 24" x 13-1/2" floral panel constructed in layers to create a sense of depth in the design. Black-backed copper foil is overlaid on the reverse side of the project to enhance an appearance of transparency that is reminiscent of a watercolor painting. This project requires advanced skills in constructing with the copper foil technique.

The steps required for completion of this commissioned project include meeting with the client, developing on-site paper patterns, fitting the project to the wall, constructing the project, and shipping it to the site in sections. The final step, installation at the site, requires the use of thinset and the selection of a grout that will complement the rest of the home’s decor.
