It is a big step to be “done” with the design of the stained glass window but now starts the real work of fabrication! And it is going to be a lot of hard work. Full size templating, cutting the glass, bending the glass, banding, assembling, soldering, etc… each done one piece at a time!
McElf got the delivery of all the glass and materials this weekend and ordered the radiused template that she will build on.
She also ordered the outer layer of curved glass that will eventually protect the window from the outside and give a little more thermal performance.
Of course design is never done until things are actually built (we are still tweaking the text), but overall we are really happy with where we ended up. It is a true collaborative piece that is of the house!
