Mermaid drawings

The initial designs had colorful tropical fish. "Whimsy" added the sea serpent, then adding a mermaid on the sea serpent for a ride. My client collects mermaid art; we had our design!

Cutting Glass

Cutting Glass
Each piece is hand cut. Different glass requires different pressure and sometimes coaxing.
Price:


Grinding glass
Grinding glass
There's a small tolerance between piece. If it's not just right, a little grinding with a wet diamond grit is needed.

A copy of the design accepts each piece as they are cut. I cut over a light table for the darker glass to see texture and color.
Price:


Firing glass paint

Firing glass paint
While I cut, I fused the glass for the eye and did another firing for the glass paint used in the face and shell.
Price:
Stretching lead
Stretching lead
Lead comes in 6' long strips and needs to be stretch for strength and to straighten.
Price:


Leading window
Previous1 of 5Next
Leading window
Once all of the pieces are cut, it's time to lead them together. Lead came is shaped like an H to accept the glass. It's sort of a tongue-in-groove assembly and the most time consuming part.
Price:
Soldering the lead
Previous1 of 3Next
Soldering the lead
The joints are soldered which will make the panel stay together.
Price:


First flip
First flip
One side is soldered, then the window is carefully handled to flip over for the other side.
Price:
Puttying the window
Previous1 of 4Next
Puttying the window
Glazing compound is forced into the space between glass and lead to waterproof and strengthen. Dry plaster absorbs oil and a brush cleans it up.
Price:


Buffing lead and glass
Previous1 of 2Next
Buffing lead and glass
The window is buffed until the solder joints blend in with the lead.
