Description

This is a stained glass suncatcher made using the Tiffany copper foil technique.

I designed this one to celebrate the start of winter as I made the first on the Winter Solstice Day 2013,
I've used colours of winter - white and blues in the same design as my Summer and Autumn Solstice suncatchers.

At the centre is a 4cm blue glass nugget which I made in my glass kiln from fusing glass with accents of sparkly dichroic glass. These nuggets are unique and unrepeatable as each turns out different.

The nugget is is set inside a 16 segmented circle. I've used all different glasses for these, textured, steaky and iridescent. It has lots of movement and interest.

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 is would make a wonderfully bright addition to any room.
It is totally individual and I am really pleased with it. It looks equally good on the wall as in the window.

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.

The 5th photo shows the previous one of this colour scheme so you can see they really are different though to the same design,

Inspiration

I designed this as a winter variation of my Rainbow Summer Solstice to celebrate the official start of winter. I've tried to use colours which represent the chill of winter snow and frost

My fused glass dichroic nuggets, made in my glass fusing 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.
