Dance Class

Design by Jody Sheppard and Jonathan Sheppard


A 9" x 10‑1/4" stained glass panel featuring three ballerinas preparing for dance class. This panel, which is included in the mother-and-son book, The Dance of Life, is one of nineteen panels included in that volume. The selection of glass and careful attention to the parts of the sheet from which the pattern pieces are cut help to give life and texture to the costume skirts as well as the ballerinas’ hair. The choice of background color helps to make the girls stand out and provides a nice finishing touch to the panel. This project was constructed using the copper foil technique.
