Arlene's original stained glass art

Stained glass art is my favorite form of creating unique art, I play with color, light, and textures with each design. I started about 14 years ago at a weekend workshop. I quickly progressed from patterns to original artworks. Inspired by wildlife and the beautiful scenery of the North Coast, I am creating designs for stained glass that reflect my idea of paradise. I have designs made incorporating my culture as well that I will be fabricating soon.
Building stained glass panels is quite an undertaking, you start with 2' x 2' squares of stained glass in many colors and textures and opacity, an idea you have to wrestle into a cuttable pattern that will withstand handling and use, and LOTS of time: for the layout of the pattern in the different steps needed; the cutting, grinding, and foiling of each piece, and then the assembly and soldering (which is about three times on each side, to get a clean look) the cleaning and installation or addition of hanging components.

Commissioned piece for "Culinary Team Canada"
