The Robin Window Panel is a symbol of a sure sign of spring. Standing as still as a statue, watching for insects, then running to the next spot to scout. This skillful hunter adores the spring rains!
Sweet details from the quizzical expression to the daring little worm, this Robin Window Panel will surely be a conversational piece.
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 Robin 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. Lastly, we add the frit details for the grassy background.
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.
