A handmade stained glass round suncatcher made of upcycled bottles. A unique abstract piece that would look beautiful as home decor.

This suncatcher is made of thirteen round glass jar bottoms. Some came from jars of pickles or pizza sauce, some from jars of yeast, some from wine bottles. I broke the bottoms off each jar, then ground the edges smooth, wrapped the jar bottom in foil and soldered them together. The smallest glass circle is 1.5 inches around and the largest is 3.5 inches around. They range in color from clear, to amber brown to shades of green. The design of the glass circles is unique to this piece-I just arranged various sizes and colors that would fit together. The spaces in between the circles is left open. Since these are all upcycled pieces, many of the glass circles have markings in the glass of numbers, letters, and ridges. There is also a dimensional level to this suncatcher because some of the jar bottoms are thicker than others, or are cut with some of the jar sides still there. The light green circle in the middle is from a wine bottle and curves outward about 1 inch.

This entire piece is held together in a 10.5 inch circular frame of 1/4 inch thick copper tubing. It hangs from 12 inches of copper chain that is soldered at the top of the circle. I also used copper patina on the solder so that the entire piece is the same copper color of the outer circle. The copper is not bright, but more of a rustic look with some darker spots.

All my glass pieces are made using the Tiffany method of copper foil and solder, along with my own imaginings. Each piece will be unique because of the variance of patterns within the glass, and the handmade quality. More of my items can be viewed here
