Description

"Nautilus Panel"

The rich burgundy-red shell shape itself has been fabricated with a gorgeous premium iridescent stained glass and the gold/orange border just brings out the colour all the more. The muted amber contrasts nicely with the featured design.

This stained glass window panel hangs on a gold colored chain and I include a small hook for hanging. This is a departure from my normal style which is typical tiffany using copper foil. This window was constructed instead by the leaded method. It involves cutting lengths of lead then pegging every piece into place to keep the shape from growing. It takes practice to get things just right. Once soldered - and with the lightest touch so the iron doesn't melt the lead - the panel gets covered in whiting powder. This is pushed into all the crevices until the panel is solid and tight. Then it is finished with wax.

I recommend a hook or a small nail hammered into sheet rock just above your window frame to support the weight. Measurements are 10.5 x 18.75 inches (26.6 x 47.6 cm) width x height. It is rare that any of my smaller panels weighs more than 8 pounds.

I often ship via Fed Ex and request a signature in order to have access to full tracking details should anything go wrong with delivery. In this case I will need a telephone number from you to give FedEx. Your contact information will not be shared with anyone else. Please provide via convo.

FAQs

I would be happy to gift wrap your item. Just send me a convo and I can include a card with the recipients name as well.
Stained glass may be cleaned by wiping with a damp cloth dipped in a few teaspoons of vinegar.
To restore lustre to unpainted zinc frames, clean with fine steel wool (000) or 400 wet/dry sandpaper.
An old toothbrush can be used to clean away oxidation from the solder lines.
Lastly, to really shine things up on a very old piece, you may use carnuba car wax, such as "Mothers". Rub on, wait a minute or two, then rub with a micro-fibre cloth until it turns dark. Again, use an old toothbrush or a soft scrub brush to remove wax from lines and fine indentations in the glass.
Feel free to write to me if you have questions; I'd be happy to help.
