I'd like to do a little celebratory tap-dance
(well, I would if I could tap-dance)
I've FINISHED this job which has consumed me for quite a few months now.
These panels are for a beautiful Victorian Rectory in North Dorset,
to match in with the existing originals.
However, the clients wanted to personalise them a bit,
so chose to have a long-tailed tit (their favourite bird)
depicted in the central panel of the three.
Each quarry (diamond shaped pane of glass) was hand-painted
(not screen printed) and required 4 separate firings.
There were about 75 of them in all
I was particularly proud of the little wasp flying next to the long-tailed tit.
There is a bit of a late-summer theme that carries on
in the front door panels which I also designed and made...
...more of which anon.
