A few months ago I posted about my newest love for stained glass, a craft that is as satisfying as it is painstaking. After finishing the first semester of the course I was absolutely obsessed and went back for another semester. Here are some photos of my recent creations.
(Side note: I am still absolutely obsessed with continuing to expand my skills with this beautiful art form and am currently working on setting up a little space where I will be able to work from home. Exciting!)
The first thing I made this semester was an antique style scallop mirror. I wanted to try something art deco inspired and a mirror seemed like the right choice. I designed the mirror pattern myself. It’s a little bit hard to tell in the photos but the scalloped edging has two different types of textured clear glass and the detailing is made from opaque black glass. I gave this to my mum for Christmas as she collects art deco mirrors. She absolutely loved it :)
(The beautiful crochet blanket in the mirror reflection was something that mum made for me a few years ago – very fitting!)
The second project I worked on for this semester was another planter (of course) – another geometric planter similar to my last project, but something a bit simpler. I love how this one turned out. It was surprisingly tricky given that there is a glass platform in the middle holding the whole thing up, but was still super fun!
