The Red-Winged Blackbird Window Panel will bring the song of the wetlands to your home. With vibrantly coloured accents to the Blackbird wings, contrasting with the sleek black body, this Red-Winged Blackbird Window Panel shines brightly in your kitchen or office window.
This stained glass window panel is created by mixing fused glass elements, along with traditional stained glass techniques. Hand shaped pieces create a lifelike bird for your home.
How it’s Made:
We create the Red-Winged Blackbird Window Panel using multiple steps. First, we cut and shape the clear glass 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 design and arrange the multiple layers of glass.
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.
