This is a stained glass suncatcher made using the Tiffany copper foil technique.
A brand new design for summer 2017 and I think it is quite stunning and very special.
It is a 'picture' of a lovely Waterlily, bright pink.
I've used my 'best' glass for the 21 petals of the waterlily. Peppermint Baroque glass. I't's very expensive and in short supply but is perfect for this flower with its streaks and stripes.
I made the central yellow nugget in my kiln especially for this flower and have added some differently coloured speckles having studied my real waterlily which obligingly was flowering as I was making this..
I've added 5 outer petals in bright green, some large darker green leaves below the flower and infilled the top with streaky green and blue glass for water.
The suncatcher is in the form of a ring which I've encircled with twisted wire for strength and neatness. It's 6 inches in diameter.
The 5th photo is of the first version I made, for my daughter, and I've shown with that photos of my garden pond water lily.
This suncatcher has 40 pieces, each individually cut, very carefully shaped to fit like a jigsaw, copper foiled, soldered together then washed and polished.
This is beautifully bright, simple and cheerful and casts lovely colours when it hangs in the light of a window.
It hangs from a strong silvery chain which is securely attached at either side of the top.
My daughter suggested that the beautiful water lily flowering in my garden pond would make a good suncatcher. I designed this based on that flower and then gave it to my daughter for her birthday.
Liked it so much that now she has seen hers, I've made another for my Folksy shop.
I post this piece lst class, signed for to provide cover as per Royal Mail value limits.
