One of the best things about being a professional stained glass artist is when someone emails me after having done some serious looking at my web site and says they want a "Mark Stine Masterpiece." This happened recently (summer of 2021) with a great lady in Maryland. We communicated a lot over the course of this project, and I now think of her as a friend. She has two quarter-round transom windows in her home, and she wanted something truly special from me. The photo above shows the set of stone bridge stained glass panels I created for her. Each panel is about 33x33 inches.

Although I often say that any stained glass that can be leaded should be leaded, there are a few times when copper foil is the right choice. The shapes of the glass pieces in this artwork are so complex that some of them could not be leaded. Luckily, I'm pretty good at copper foil, too, even though I employ it only about 3% of the time. To achieve the level of precision that I bring to all of my creations, I cut every line in the full size drawing twice, once on each side of the pencil line, with a tiny pair of scissors. This removes just the right amount of paper, resulting in paper patterns that go on to become pieces of glass that fit precisely.
