Desert Hummingbird

Volume 28 - Issue 1

A 14" x 20" stained glass garden panel featuring hummingbirds and blooming cacti. The design uses many different colors and textures of flat glass, powder, and frit. Broken grape stringer is sprinkled on the glass along with course frit to add texture and interest to the cactus pads. The design pieces are then cut, foiled, and soldered to form the design. The project requires approximately twenty hours to complete. This project was constructed using the copper foil technique.
