Details:

The Blue Jay Window Panel is a vibrant addition of nature to your home. The cheeky expression is a reminder of these confident and boastful birds.

This piece of glass art is created using a combination of fused glass elements, along with traditional stained glass techniques. Hand shaped pieces and painted detailing create a lifelike bird for your home.

How it’s Made:

We create the Blue Jay Window Panel using multiple steps. First, we cut the clear glass to size for the background. Next, each of the pieces for the bird are cut and shaped to fit. We use various types of grinders to achieve the perfect shape. Once the glass pieces are cleaned, we paint the background branches and set aside to allow to dry.

The colour in the Blue Jay is created using a blend of powdered glass and enamels to create the lifelike representation.  The pieces are arranged in layers to mimic the 3-dimensional effect for the bird.

Last, we arrange individual pieces of vitrigraph stringer to create realistic pine needles, and add brown frits for the textured pinecone.

We fire the pieces just enough to allow a textured contour to the surface of the glass. This allows for a delightfully touchable piece of art. During the kiln firing, the glass is annealed which relieves internal stresses within the glass.  This creates a stronger and more durable piece of glass.

Once the glass cools, we cut the coloured border and wrap each piece in a copper foil. Next, the pieces are soldered together. Lastly, we add a lead border for a clean and crisp finish.

Each panel in the Birds of a Feather Collection hang from approximately 3 feet of sturdy chain. We recommend hanging your stained glass window using hooks in or above the window frame. Suction cups are not recommended.
