This is a stained glass suncatcher made using the Tiffany copper foil technique.
I called this Summer Solstice in celebration of the wonderful brightness of summer light, bursts of sunlight and of course the rainbows of summer storms.
I've fused a 4cm bright red glass nugget with dichroic and rainbow highlights in my hotpot kiln and then set this inside a 16 segmented circle of wonderful rainbow colours.
The circle is framed for strength and neatness with twisted wire.
This is 13cms in diameter and hangs from a little silvery chain which is securely attached to the top of the suncatcher.
It makes a wonderfully bright addition to any room.
It is totally individual and I love making it.
I never make two pieces exactly the same, I always use slightly different colours and textures of glass for each piece to ensure they are unique.
I can never make another just the same as this, as my dichroic nuggets are unrepeatable.
Photos 1-4 are of this suncatcher and the 5th shows a previous one to the same colour scheme and more to the same Colour Wheel design but other colours.
My fused glass dichroic nuggets, made in my microwave hotpot kiln, are great fun to make but the dichroic glass I use is very expensive. I guard it like gold dust. I love opening the kiln when the fusing is complete as I never know quite what I will have made.
I really enjoy making these colour wheels which is why I now make them in several different colour
