A unique handmade piece of stained glass art of a weeping willow tree. The tree branches are made of wire with stained glass leaves. This piece would look equally nice hanging in a window as a sun catcher or on a wall as home decor.

The outer frame of the tree is a circle that is 10.25 inches (26 cm) around and made of thick nickel coated copper wire. The main tree trunk is made from two wires that curve from the bottom of the circle and out to the sides. All the thinner wire branches extend from these main trunk wires. The branches all curve up and then down, with some of the branches at the top forming a crossing pattern as they curve down. All the wires are soldered to each other where they cross, and also to the outer frame when they touch it. At the bottom of each smaller wire branch is a long thin leaf made out of light green glass. Each glass leaf has been cut, ground smooth, wrapped in copper foil, and soldered to the wire. There are 20 leaves total.

The space between the wires is all open, which makes this piece very lightweight and with an airy feel. The circle hangs from a wire hook soldered at the top of the piece.

Growing up, we had a couple willow trees on our farm. I always loved how the branches would hang down like a canopy and I tried to recreated that feel in this piece.

All my glass pieces are made using the Tiffany method of copper foil and solder, along with my own imaginings. Each piece will be unique because of the variance of patterns within the glass, and the handmade quality. More of my items can be viewed here http://www.fivesparrows.etsy.com

Frequently asked questions about FiveSparrows

I am happy to do a custom order if it is feasible to create. Don't hesitate to ask, and I can let you know if it is doable. I am happy to work with you on designs and colors, and will do some messaging back and forth with you to make sure you end up with a finished project that you enjoy.

I don't do anything that is copyrighted by someone else (team logos, movie characters etc) and am unable to do large leaded items.
Hang sun catchers on a stable hanger in a window-I would recommend a nail or hook over a suction cup. Outdoor garden art can be outside in the elements, as long as they are brought inside in the winter. (or a strong wind-use your judgement-I have garden stakes that stay out all summer and hold up fine)

Over time the glass and solder can get dusty or tarnished. The glass can be wiped clean with non-ammonia cleaner and a soft cloth. Car wax can also be applied over the piece and then buffed off with a soft rag. This will clean the solder lines and shine the glass as well.
My items are shipped between layers of cardboard, and tied with a raffia ribbon. I am happy to add a note if you are sending the item as a gift. Just send me a message or a note when ordering of what you would like included.
I am happy to do wholesale pricing if you are ordering over 10 of an item. My ability to do large orders is limited by time - it is just one person creating, so I can only work so fast. Please ask about wholesale items though and remember to allow extra time for the creating process.
