A one of a kind suncatcher made from upcycled and recycled glass jars and wire. All connected together to make a very unique type of stained glass suncatcher!

I like the idea of taking something ordinary and turning it into art. In this case, I cut the bottoms off glass jars that held ordinary kitchen items like lemon juice, salsa, and yeast. Then, each piece was ground and shaped smooth. I wrapped each piece in copper foil and soldered them all together. This suncatcher has 3 large circles from glass jars-clear, green and brown. There is also one jar bottom that broke in half, so I placed those semi-circles in the piece as well. A couple of the jars broke higher up, so the clear and green circles are concave. On the semicircle jar bottom you can read the words "tabasco pepper 35".

Along with the recycled glass, there are 5 glass globs of blue, green, red and yellow. After soldering the piece needed some extra stability so I started adding wire swirls. The wire twists around both sides of the larger circles and adds to the overall design.

This piece can hang in many different ways. Due to the wire swirls, there are 4 different spots to hang it from. The photos show the different looks. I will include a fishing line and you can make the piece your own by hanging it however you like best!

The suncatcher is 7 inches (17.7 cm) by 6 inches (15.2 cm).
