Description

This lightening bolt sun catcher is inspired by David Bowie's album Aladdin Sane and is our original stained glass interpretation of his amazing design. Our popular design has been favorited over 600 times (April 2018)! Thanks for the love <3

It features bright orange and turquoise blue glass in the iconic shape of the lightening bolt painted on Bowie's face for the album cover. A little background about the image is listed below.

Color may vary slightly since each piece of glass is unique and lighting can change the look. This piece is hand cut, ground, copper foiled and soldered. Black patina was added for a finished, polished look.

It measures approximately 6 in x 4 in. Ships in 1-3 business days (M-F)

Ships USPS Priority. Can be combined with one other small sun catcher in my shop to save on shipping. US shipping is accurate, international shipping is an estimate and may be less depending on your location. If you'd like more accurate shipping internationally, please convo with your location. I always refund any money paid over the actual shipping price.


His mixed feelings about the journey stemmed, in Bowie's words, from "wanting to be up on the stage performing my songs, but on the other hand not really wanting to be on those buses with all those strange people... So Aladdin Sane was split down the middle."[8] This kind of "schizophrenia", as Bowie described it, was conveyed on the cover by his makeup, where a lightning bolt represents the duality of mind, although he would later tell friends that the "lad insane" of the album's title track was inspired by his brother Terry, who had been diagnosed as a schizophrenic.[8][9][10] Bowie himself came up with the idea of the lightning bolt over his face, but said the teardrop was Brian Duffy's idea: "He [Brian] put on that afterward, just popped it in there. I thought it was rather sweet."[11]

FAQs

It depends...min 1 week and up to 3 weeks on larger, more complicated pieces. Please convo with any questions or if you have a deadline and we'll work with you. Please remember we're not a big business corporation. We're normal people with jobs and a family but we always ship items by the schedule listed under shipping tab for each listing.
Absolutely! We'd love to bring your vision to light. Just convo the color scheme you're looking for, and if we don't have the glass, we'll find it. Any glass piece can be changed to fit your needs.
Yes, in the Charlotte NC area
Yes. If you have an idea, we can turn it into stained glass. Just send a couple pictures and we'll come up with a custom design. David is an excellent pattern maker, so message us, and we'll make it happen.
If you're using the pattern for personal use in your own home, then sure, knock yourself out. However, most of our glass items are custom patterns, which take a lot of time to create and get just right. Using our patterns to make a piece and then sell, whether on Etsy or in person, is unethical and theft. Please don't steal stuff, that's not cool
1.We respond quickly to customer questions.
2. We always ship on time by the shipping deadline or your shipping is free.
3. Our solder lines are smooth and round. Don't buy stained glass in which the solder lines are jagged or not rounded. That's artist didn't use enough solder and your piece will not be strong.
4. We always finish our piece with patina and polish, a step many artist skip. It doesn't cost us much, or you as the customer, and it makes the piece more beautiful.
