Often on trash day, people put out old windows that they have replaced with the new energy efficient ones. Not being able to fit in a recycling bin, the windows often sit there until the garbage truck comes along to take them to the landfill. I see them and think about all the possibility that lies within those panes. I just can't pass them by. I stop and put them into the back of my truck, and bring them to the studio to await a new life.

One day someone called asking if I could make a glass feather, and I thought this might be the perfect use for some of that glass. I cut the glass into the feather shape, and then paint it using glass stain. I am careful to create the brush marks on the glass, to give the look of the individual hairs in a feather. To make the stain permanent, I heat the feathers in a kiln, firing them at a high temperature.

This feather is a beautiful yellow, accented with peach. It hangs from a strong plastic filament attached to a metal hanger which is securely fixed to the feather using a reliable epoxy glue. I placed the hanger about a quarter of the way down so it hangs at a jaunty angle. This feather has a nice curve to it, and it lays flat.

Colors on glass are difficult to capture in a photo, as it looks different depending on the light. The stain is a bright yellow, which I accented with a peachy orange. It looks much darker in the shade than in direct sunlight. The photo on the wooden plank was taken in the North American winter sunlight, slightly shaded to prevent glare. The hanging photos were taken in the shade: the brighter ones with the light in front, the darker two with diffused light coming from behind.

I can create these feathers in many colors and combinations, from life like to fantasy. Convo me if there is a special one you would like me to create for you.

This leaf measures just about 8" long and weighs about one ounce, but I recommend hanging any glass that you love from a secure frame, as suction cups can be disappointingly unreliable.

I ship using USPS ground shipping, but can speed things up, or ship overseas if you are interested. Convo me for details.
