Elephant Repair 2016

A client in Calgary has had this Elephant suncatcher for many years, unfortunately the thin wire hanging rings that were attached to the outside foil eventually came apart from the sunshine window heat.

Luckily the piece was rescued before falling and breaking. We then soldered fine silver chain into the reverse seams, followed by patina touch up, cleaning (Kwik Clean) and polishing (Clarity Stained Glass Finishing Compound).

The Elephant measures approximately 12 x 12 inches. The original unknown stained glass artist did a great job in using Spectrum’s Glass, unfortunately with the soon closing of The Spectrum Glass Company their glass will eventually no longer be available.

"Vines"

Texture and colour… how do you know when it’s too much? You don’t… at least not when you are experimenting and working on the details of the whole composition.
In this piece I wanted to experiment and work the idea that I had in mind… I changed the colours so many times you could scrape layer after layer in this piece. Why did I decide to leave it monochromatic? Because less is more… at least for this piece. The texture and movement of the vines don’t need anything else to add to the effect, if only it were so easy to realize when in life less is more…

Whether as an experiment or a challenge, try something new and decide that the essence of who you are and the purpose for which you are doing it don’t need anything else added to, because by it self, what you are doing is great, it’s more than enough… in the same way that you are more than enough…
