The question: ” how long did that take you to make?” is never easy to answer. The time from inspiration to finished piece involves many steps. Inspiration can come from anywhere, a color combination I see, an image, a mood, a feeling or a place. Sometimes it leads to a design that does not get translated in to glass right away. So, I have a collection of drawings that are waiting for the “right time”. Other times it is a shorter process from drawing to glass selection, cutting, grinding, foiling and soldering. After that of course is cleaning, applying patina and framing. Not a short process by any means but then a good piece of stained glass work can last forever.
