art with a Native American theme is achieved in a captivating manner in
Rainbowmaker #3, a freehanging
artwork that is
currently for sale. The design is based on Navajo sand paintings, yet
is completely original, like all of my stained glass artworks (the #3
in the title of this artwork means this is the third artwork in this
series... however, no two pieces in any series I make are "alike").
This is a leaded glass artwork, using 1/8"
throughout (all lead and solder have been patina-ed a uniform charcoal
gray). This stained glass artwork is framed in a natural oak wood
frame. The centerpiece of the Indian spirit's body is a large clear
faceted glass "jewel", like a giant cut diamond. The clouds are wispy
light gray glass edged with a rich turquoise band.
The background is composed of two textured clear glasses, a
heavily "seeded" clear glass (seeded = tiny bubbles) above the clouds
and a straight-lined clear glass below the clouds that looks like rain.
The clear glass in the headdress is a closely lined texture with
alternating pieces at different angles that creates a herringbone
effect (see detail photo). The lightning bolts are zinc overlays, also
colored charcoal gray by the patina. This piece provides almost total
privacy, but is also very colorful.
15" wide by 33" high. This, like all of my artworks,
is a one-of-a-kind piece and is perfectly
crafted. It comes ready to hang (small screw-eyes are screwed
into the wood) with plenty of braided wire and extra screw-eyes for
easy hanging in a wood, metal, or plaster sash window sill.
