Life

Maureen Melville's avatar Maureen Melville

The first photo shows 16 transparent stained glass panels joined together to make one composition celebrating life in its many joyous forms. For ArtPrize I would like to continue making 16 additional unique panels so that the final piece would measure 4' x 8' with 32 panels. The second photo shows a companion group of panels with leaf shapes as their motif. I propose to make an additional 8 panels so that this group would also have 32 squares. All the panels are made from handmade colored German glass joined together with an optically clear glue or glued to plate glass. The black detail is powdered glass which is painted onto the colored glass and fired on permanently in a kiln.
