But there is nothing quite like the look of stained glass art.
I kept track and this one took me 27 hours to complete from design to putting the hooks on. It's a 20" x 30" panel consisting of 100 pieces.
I made this one for my office window. Then realized it didn't look good there and moved it to the family room where it gets more light.
It's a two piece project. The wall and leaves are one panel. The lizard is separate and soldered over the top. I did it this way because I didn't see a viable way to do the lizard toes justice if embedded in the back panel.
In hindsight, I probably should have made the glass behind the head clear. When lit from behind, it makes it look like his head in in shadow. However, a friend told me that "To me, it looks like the lizard is headed into the foliage so its head is in shadow.” I like that.
