Vanishing Prairie Sentinels

Grain Elevators are all but gone on the Canadian Prairies, those that remain are being preserved by local historical societies etc. We just made a series of these for a client that gives them away as gifts. The elevators measure approximately 5 inches wide x 7 inches high.

We were fortunate many years ago to obtain Alberta Wheat Pool Stickers. The glass used for the elevator was Spectrums # 823.72 Teal Green.

For the Pioneer Elevator the glass used was Spectrum # 379.1S Light Orange and White Wispy. We had the white letter specifically made for the Pioneer Elevator.

We had the United Grain Grower symbol made and the glass for the Elevator was Spectrum # 307 Clear White Feather White.

The lettering on the Saskatchewan Pool Elevator is white and the glass used was Spectrum # 359.1 Red & White Wispy.

Early this year we made this Butterfly Trio Cluster. The top red butterfly was made with Bullseye #1311 Crimson Red, for the bottom left we used a Bullseye # 3346-30 Cranberry Pink, Azure Blue, and for the one in the middle a heads & tails piece of Youghiogheny. This suncatcher measures approximately 6 inches wide by 8 inches high.
