Next Window Project: Three Tulips

Hot on the heels of the Blue Window completion, we began the Three Tulips panel next.  This also entailed trips to stained glass stores to find the right glass for the job.  There are always so many variables when it comes to color selection and in hindsight, I probably would have gone with something different again, but it's a learning process.  We used the glass bandsaw for this project which was also the first time we broke an expensive blade.  Expensive learning process.

The flowers are Uroboros glass (beautiful stuff!) and the leaves are Spectrum.  The background was also Spectrum Baroque, a very interesting glass to use for the movement contained in each sheet.  The stems and borders were Kokomo and Wissmach.
