It’s been a while, friend.

“Koi Pond” project begun 11+ years ago as a gift to my mother.  All leaded glass work stopped when we got pregnant, so the project took a rest in the basement until um..  now?  I brought it up to rest in the studio for a while to keep me company.

This is a particularly difficult piece, in that the water and koi were strategically cut from a single piece of glass to preserve the continuous features and texture of the glass.  The pattern.  -Oh, can’t remember where I got it.  But I did modify it slightly with some thick jewels which raise above the plane of the rest of the piece.  This design is more contemporary that I normally like, but definitely the most challenging  I’ve ever done (hence the fear of finishing!)
