Bird-Saving Stained Glass Iris

This panel was drawn and is being created for the sake of the birds.

A friend of mine has a window that birds love to fly into. However, by doing so, it usually hurts them badly or kills them.

In order to keep our feathered friends healthy and away from her window, I am making this pretty Iris stained glass panel to be hung in the window to ward off any suicide attempting birds.

This panel is currently in the work-in-progress stage. Check back soon for the completed piece.

Colors in this panel include kelly green leaves, dark aqua and dark blue for the petals of the iris and chunky clear for the back ground. The chunky clear glass is crafted in a way that it actually twinkles (like ice) when exposed to sunlight.
