An early attempt at Stained Glass

These are a couple of stained glass panels that I made for my mothers front door. They were just held on the inside of the clear glass by some nails.

They were made maybe 35 years ago.

My wife took a stained glass class, she went to half the lessons and I went to the rest. She made window sun catchers and I made flat panels. (These maybe my only creations.)

When Mother passed away and we were looking to sell the house I brought the panels home.

My son spied them and they disappeared again.

I found them hanging from the ceiling in his home.

I’m glad that they are still around and are being used.

Nice work!!
Have you been keeping in touch with Dusty by chance?
Seeing your stained glass made me wonder. I emailed him a couple of days ago, but I haven’t had a reply yet. I was wondering how he was doing? The last time I talked to him he had his hands full between looking taking care of his parents and some thing he was doing with furthering his education with the stain glass
Say hi to him for me if you talk to him.

Isn’t it wonderful that your son saw the importance of keeping something you made!

They are very nice Karson and I think it is wonderful that they are a family keepsake. I agree with Jon, they do have a nautical flavor …... nautical but nice.

Very nice Karson they bring some pretty colors to a room along with some good memories ! It must be flattering to know that your son wanted to have something made by you and hung in his grandmothers house .

Nice work, Karson! You should make some custom stained glass panels for hutch doors, then make the hutch, too :)
