Rainy Day Kokeshi

Design by Leslie Gibbs

An 8‑3/4" x 11-1/2" stained glass panel featuring a delicate Japanese Kokeshi doll amid beautiful hydrangeas. The Grape Iridescent glass used for the sky gives the suggestion of sheets of rain falling around the doll. Careful selection of the blue Nautica glass used for her robe beautifully portrays the soft folds of the material. The hydrangea blossoms are created by painting them on pink and grape glass and firing them in the kiln. This project was constructed using the copper foil technique.
