This shamrock panel features a cotton candy pink background and a periwinkle blue etched center. It measures roughly 11.25" wide by 12" tall, and ships via USPS with insurance.

Pink glass is made with gold, and as such, you may have noticed that this piece is a little more expensive than the other pieces of similar layout and size - that's due to the price of pink glass. The periwinkle blue glass in the center is a special sort of glass called flashed glass that made its entry into the world of stained glass in answer to the popularity of heraldic designs in the late medieval period. Flashed glass is typically clear glass with a thin layer of colored glass over it, so the result is that when a design is etched into it, the design is very crisp and a different color than the background of the piece it's etched into.

Every piece that I make is a one-of-a-kind, and although I repeat designs, I never choose the exact same glass colors twice. This is built in the copper foil technique, and the glass art is my full time job (and has been!) for over 15 years. The initial shamrock design was something I sketched on a napkin a long time ago in an overly crowded restaurant, and then cleaned up later in my studio in Photoshop.
