These are beautiful, but they aren’t physical stained glass – they’re paintings (digital?) that look like glass [and are acknowledged as such on her website’s front-page], but could never be glass because you just can’t make acute-angle cuts like that, holy cow.
My parents have done stained glass since before I was born, so I practically teethed on lead came.
Hrm, maybe I did. That would explain a lot.
That’s what caught my eye too. I did a couple semesters of stained glass - where you actually cut the colored glass and then assemble it with either copper foil or lead came.
As OtherMichael mentioned, it is incredibly difficult to cut a pie-shaped slice out of a piece of glass - in fact it cannot be cut, it must be ground on something that looks like a router table, and even then , you can only go so so deep before the stresses prevail and you break what you are grinding on.
Beautiful paintings. I love the detail in Jaffar’s hat.
You are very right. I’ve been to 4 different stained glass makers and they told me if they were to recreate it, it would look nothing like it and the cuts were impossible to cut
but thank you all. I am glad you like my paintings <3
I’ve seen some pretty decent fake stained glass windows using a variety of techniques ranging from panes created from colored resin to hot glue guns & acrylic paint on plexiglass, you might try one of those for fun if you just want to see what these would look like as a physical window.
