Sunday evening we had a special visit from our wonderful stained glass artist to-be, Colleen (owner of Bluebird Studios in Virginia)!
Who is also my mom’s best friend- Aren’t these ladies just too cute?!
Here is the future location of the masterpiece to-be:
Some ideas so far include incorporating some old glass we found during renovations, and Megan, Colleen’s daughter who is ALSO a glass artist at their studio suggested rondels (rundels?) which are handblown glass circles which sound so cool. There are so many ways of concealing the structure of the glass these days- big lead dividing bars aren’t necessary anymore- but basically the way it’s done now is the way it would have been done hundreds of years ago.
Can’t wait to get this baby back into its full victorian days glory! And we also discussed another piece above our front door which would have our house numbers on it… We are equally excited about that one!
