This unique stained glass owl is my original design. This particular owl is done in shades of blue. A transparent vibrant shade of azure blue is used for the body and head. The large wing section and eyebrows are made of a bright blue with a white streakiness. The small wing section is made of a streaky sky blue glass. The whites of the eyes and the beak are a transluscent, slightly streaky white glass with an iridescent sheen, and the inner eye circles are a darker azure blue glass. As you can see from the photos, many of the owl's features have been attached by stacking them atop his body, giving him some dimensionality. I have used re-claimed scrap glass from a local opalescent glass producer.

The glass is completely hand cut, copper foiled, and soldered by yours truly. The method I use to create my stained glass items -copper foiling- was developed by the infamous stained glass artist Louis Comfort Tiffany over 100 years ago. Copper tape is used to edge each piece of glass. The pieces are then assembled with each copper surface soldered together, joining the pieces to create the finished form.

The spiral "branches" have also been made by me, by twisting, forming, and leading copper wire.The leading and wire branches have been patina'd to achieve a rich black. These areas have also been oiled to protect them from the effects of the elements and time.
From head to belly he measures 4.5 inches (11,5 cm).
From wing tip to opposite spiral is 6 inches (15,2 cm).
