Spring Cardinal

Volume 28 - Issue 1

A 20" x 20" stained glass outdoor nature panel depicting a cardinal perching in the branches of a tree. The detail included in the twists and turns of the branches and the intricate feathering on the underside of the bird’s tail bring realism to the panel. Careful color selection for the background, leaves, and bark adds the finishing touches needed to give a feeling of depth and a three-dimensional quality to this striking panel. This design from Aanraku Glass Studios is appropriate even for first-time stained glass artists using Aanraku cutting methods and was constructed using the copper foil technique.
