Design, Fabrication, and Text by Joseph E. Godek


A 14" x 7‑1/2" free-form Chippaway Art Glass pewter branch decorated with two small stained glass chickadee panels and sprigs of leaves and red berries. The tutorial shares tips for making “negative” patterns for cutting the glass pieces and techniques for connecting the birds and leaves to the branch. This project was constructed using the copper foil technique.
