In selling my work at Renaissance Festivals, I get a lot of requests for dragons, and for whatever reason, my brain brakes hard and refuses to draw anything remotely awesome in the dragon department. They always end up looking vaguely gargoyle-like. So I decided to quit fighting it, and just make a gargoyle piece. And then (cause I'm a great lover of books) I wondered if gargoyles read much. I felt like they probably had a lot of free time. So naturally, I began to wonder what sort of books they would read?
How it's made: I painted the gargoyle in the center of this traditional stained glass piece using kiln fired glass paints and reductive shading techniques that have been in use since medieval times. The background features kiln fired glass paint as well, creating a work capable of lasting for centuries. It is a one of a kind piece, and is made entirely in my rural Ohio stained glass and etc. studio.
The panel measures 11.25" wide by roughly 15.5" tall. The frame is made of polyurethane coated poplar wood, and features two hanging hooks, one on each of the top two corners. Shipping includes insurance and signature confirmation.
