I wanted to share with you all this extremely beautiful piece of stained glass art that I found in one of my favorite shops Glass Act Stained Glass by Maddy7 Not only is it a stunning piece of art, the subject matter, the Iris flower has special meaning to me.
Stained Glass Iris by Maddy7
This beautiful piece was a labor of love for the artist, it took her about 12-14 hours to complete. Maddy shared a little about the process with me:
"After the pattern is drawn, the glass has to be cut, the rough edges have to be ground off, then each piece has to be wrapped in a copper foil, when all the pieces are done, all the copper seams are soldered, (also known as the Tiffany Method). Then, clean the piece and a glass wax is applied."
Maddy lives in Wisconsin and has been working with stain glass for over 20 years. She is a true artist and master of her craft. I encourage you to visit her shop and browse, I'm sure you'll find something you like. I am happy to own two of her christmas ornaments and hope that someone in my family might be inspired to buy me this gorgeous piece..lol
