A Study in Corners

These are a few of my favorite things. Well -- favorite things while making stained glass panels.

Creating a glass panel requires a certain amount of precision and fussiness. It also requires pliers and diamond-bit saws. Balance. It also requires balance.

To make a panel where the pieces line up precisely - a lot of detail must be given to the corners where the various pieces join.

So -- what better way to practice this skill that to do it over and over again.

Using red glass is my favorite color and clear glass with impressions add a nice touch to the piece.
